Solar Water Pumping
A solar water pump has a mini power house at its heart and consists of a calibrated and matching solar array of modules – tuned with the equivalent power of pump for that particular application. SPS's solar water pumping systems provide reliable water supply at low costs. The unique beauty of SPS’s solar water pumping system is that it can work with any existing AC-powered submersible pump – you can just retrofit your existing pump and immediately enjoy more reliable water supply.
Our systems are designed to power pumps from 1HP to 7.5HP, for both single phase and 3-phase.
Cutting Edge Technology
With the cutting edge technology and development in the Solar Pump arena we have pioneered in designing Solar Pumps with best utility and value for money. The technology is independent of Conventional Form of energy and can be installed at remote places. Technology is ideally suitable for agriculture sector as it leads to self-sustainability and is free from problems like feeder damage, supply cut, rate hikes etc.
High Performing Capacity
Solar Pumps are developed in such capacities that they can be used independently and with electricity also. With high performing capacity they can work tirelessly for 12 hours from Sunrise to Sunset. Being manufactured by the signature technology the total project cost with 100% payback can be achieved in 3-5 years.
The reliability and economy of solar electric power make it an excellent choice for powering remote water pumping. Cattle ranchers all over the world are enthusiastic solar pump users. Their water sources are often spread over many miles of rangeland where utility power is not accessible and where refueling and maintenance costs are high for generator use. If your water source is more than 1/3 mile from utility power, solar is a favorable economic choice. This fact is substantiated by a number of rural electric cooperatives across the U.S. These co-ops actively promote use of solar pumps because the cost to extend new power lines is prohibitive.
Solar panels should be located in a sunny spot where no shading occurs. Altitude is not a factor, but height off the ground will affect whether or not you are able to keep them clear of snow.
Panels should be angled optimally for solar gain, particularly during the shorter winter days. If your site is in the northern hemisphere you should point your panels to true south. The reverse is true for places in the southern hemisphere. For many locations there is quite a difference between magnetic south and true south, so you should consult a declination map before setting your mounting structure.
The solar panels should be tiled up from horizontal to get a better angle at the sun and to help shed rain and snow. For best year round power output, with the least amount of maintenance, you should face the solar panel(s) true south at a tilt angle equal to your latitude with respect to the horizontal position.
If you are able to adjust the solar panel seasonally, a good rule of thumb is:
• Latitude minus 15 degrees in the summer
• Latitude in the spring/fall
• Latitude plus 15 degrees in the winter
