Solar pumping is the name given to the pumps that, instead of being powered by electric current, use solar energy. Our country has areas that are suffering from serious problems of desertification, access to water is unequal and unfortunately there are areas where it is scarce. On the other hand there are also areas in which there is no electricity supply because they are rural zones that are not urbanized and where it is not possible to obtain energy from the grid.
In all these places, the solar water pumping, is imposed as a valid alternative for agriculture, livestock and other sectors where it is necessary to extract and distribute water.
In addition, it is a system that tries to solve the water problems of some areas with very low annual rainfall; taking even the water to those places where there is no electrical installation that allows us to have this source of power.
So you can become more familiar with this type of pumps, we have written the following article in which we give you more details of the solar pumps.
Solar pumps: advantages
The main advantages of the solar pumps are in their null electrical expenditure. The power supply in sunlight, so it is clean and free if we have the installation of relevant solar panels. But, in addition to this aspect, we have other advantages that we expose below:
They have a better performance since their consistency in irrigation usually implies a greater presence of moisture in the soil, which multiplies the possibilities of producing from the cultivation areas.
It is an ecological and sustainable system that hardly has an impact on the environment in which it works.
Less maintenance costs The combas that work with solid fuels or electricity tend to have high maintenance costs derived from the very nature of the power source. This does not happen with solar pumps.
These are pumps that allow the complete automation of the irrigation process or water distribution, so they are very advantageous for those who have to attend different tasks at the same time. They even have systems and applications that allow remote control.
Considering the type of activity that we develop there are different types of solar pumps that will help us develop them. These are: solar pumps that do direct solar pumping to water accumulation pond; solar pumps that directly serve drip irrigation; pumps that allow sprinkler irrigation; and solar pumps that directly feed large areas of sprinkler irrigation.
They can be used with or without cistern; or taking advantage of the system of accumulation of water that they have at present. And it is that it adapts to the infrastructure that you have in march.
Solar pumps are usually sold in kits that include everything that the start-up requires for solar water pumping.
This is: a 3-inch submersible electric pump; a set of adjustable solar panels of 160 watts of power; folding and transportable solar panels; an electrical control and protection panel; pump outlet connectors; a cable splice kit; a spare screw driver; 20 meters of cable for feeding the pump; one and a half meters of electrical cable connecting the pump to the KBS box; two water level sensors; 30 meters of flexible pipe for water conduction and a clamp for this same work; as well as 20 meters of steel cable to be able to have the pump in suspension. There are also hybrid or isolated solar pump systems.
In Bombas Ideal we have models of these solar pumps, so if you need more information about it or you want to acquire one of them, you just have to contact us. You can do it through the website or in the telephone numbers that appear on the website.
