What is a Solar Pump?

A solar-powered pump is a pump running on electricity generated by photovoltaic panels or the thermal energy available from collected sunlight as opposed to grid electricity or diesel run water pumps.The operation of solar powered pumps is more economical mainly due to the lower operation and maintenance costs and has less environmental impact than pumps powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE). Solar pumps are useful where grid electricity is unavailable and alternative sources (in particular wind) do not provide sufficient energy.

What are the applications of a solar pump?

 Solar pumping is an efficient, low-maintenance and economical option for livestock, agricultural, recreational,  residential,  oil and gas industry applications.

What is the role of solar pumps in the Oil Industry?

One of the ironies between renewable and non-renewable sources of energy is that in order to combat negative publicity related to the environmental impacts of fossil fuels, including fracking, the industry is embracing solar powered pumping systems. Many oil and gas wells require the accurate injection (metering) of various chemicals under pressure to sustain their operation and to improve extraction rates and these can sustainably be achieved through solar pumps.

How do solar systems compare to windmills?

Solar water pumping systems have many advantages over traditional windmill water pumps. Both the initial and lifetime costs of solar powered systems are often far less than windmills due to lower shipping, installation, and maintenance costs. Solar pumps operate anywhere the sun shines while windmills work where there is a steady, constant wind supply. Finally windmills are stationary while solar systems can be more easily moved to meet seasonal or variable location needs.

 How do Solar pumps work?

The picture below illustrates how a solar pump works;

Solar pumps operate using three main components. Solar cells in the solar panel collect the sun rays and convert them into usable electricity. These cells are usually covered in silicon or another semiconductor material that produces direct-current electricity. Wiring moves the electricity from the cells to the pump, and the pump does the work of moving the water. Some systems may also contain a battery, which is charged when the sun is shining for use when it is dark outside.
