We have abundant sources of water which include Ocean, lakes, rivers, ponds and boreholes. We normally however face challenges in moving water from these sources to our homes or our farms. Pumping water using electrical pumps is a more efficient means but pumping water using solar water pumps is the most efficient, economical and environmentally means of delivering water to the desired outlet.
Advantages of water pumping include the fact that the system is for a long term economical. The payback period is less than five years while the system can last for up to 15 years. In addition solar water pumping is environmentally friendly as there is no carbon emission to environment.
Solar water pumping normally comprise of the solar modules, pump controller and the pump. The operating principal of this system is that, during the day with solar irradiation, solar energy from the sun is converted to DC electricity by solar modules and this electricity is controlled by the pump controller to match the requirement of the pump. Water is pump from the source to the outlet whenever the sun is available.

Solar pool pumping is another utilization of solar energy to circulate water around the swimming pools. This is means to reduce significantly the cost of pumping water around the pool using conventional means.
With consideration many people already have pumps running on conventional energy (grid or diesel generator) and would not want to invest much in purchasing solar power pumps, PEL has the solution for this. Solar can be introduced to the existing system by installing some solar modules and a pump controller. Find more on these controllers which are capable of converting solar electricity to AC electricity which can run the conventional water pumps.
