Solar Panel for Irrigation

Once a very expensive technology, prices have dropped in recent years and can be further offset through Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs)

A typical solar powered pumping system consists of a solar panel array that powers an electric motor, which in turn powers a bore or surface pump. The water is often pumped from the ground or stream into a storage tank that provides a gravity feed, so energy storage is not needed for these systems. PV powered pumping systems are a cost-effective alternative to agricultural wind turbines for remote area water supply.
