Solar pumps fall into two major categories – submersible well pumps and surface delivery & pressure (booster) pumps. The major components of a solar pump system are the pump, controller and solar panels. Accessories include solar mounting frames, cables, level indicator etc. Some systems include batteries if pumping is to be done day and night or when a storage tank is not installed.
Submersible solar pumps are generally used for pumping from wells, and are designed to fit inside the well casing in a drilled hole. The well may be anywhere from a few metres to 250m deep – but the deeper the well, the more expensive the system since more panels are required. Solar powered pumps are very energy efficient using less power compared to similar conventional pumps.
Fortune CP designs and supplies solar pumps and complete systems providing water from as little as 1000 litres to millions of litres per day. All systems are powered by highly efficient Fortune CP solar panels.
