A solar pump is a pump that is powered with the heat and radiation of the sun. A solar pump uses solar energy which is then converted into electrical energy to pump water.
The advantages of using a solar pump are varied • Electricity is not required for the functioning of a solar pump • It reduces dependence of rainfall for irrigation.
Solar powered pumps are environment friendly because the system functions on power that is generated form a solar photovoltaic system.
It is economical to use a solar pump because of the unlimited source of solar energy which is available and therefore there is no fuel cost.
