The free power of the sun is an obvious choice for many water pumping requirements. This is especially true for remote locations. No expensive electrical infrastructure is required and solar pump installations is virtually maintenance free.
Solar pumps are an energy efficient, environmentally friendly way to pump water for a variety of domestic and commercial purposes, including agricultural and residential irrigation and cattle or livestock watering. Solar pumps are easy to install and they can have a lifespan of roughly 20 years. After the initial set up costs their servicing requirements are virtually nil.
The main criteria for sizing pumps and the associated solar array is the total head and the volume of water required per day. Our engineers will also consider factors like the available solar radiation at your location, pipe diameter, cable sizes and the length of pipe runs.
With new VSD technology, it is now also easy and cost-effective to power an existing AC pump with a solar array, while still retaining the possibility of running it with grid power if needed.
Choosing and sizing the correct pump can be a challenge but ALLSOLAR has in-house specialists to design the optimum solution for your needs. Advanced software is used and we will provide you with a summary of performance figures. This will include design parameters, sizing results, daily and monthly production predictions and even pump curves if required.
