Solar-electric power has proven to be a perfect way to lift water for drinking, sanitation, stock tanks, and irrigation. Solar power is no longer an expensive, investigational energy source. Solar electricity in other words photovoltaics are now standard in many commercial, industrial, military, and consumer applications. Solar power is clean. You need not worry about polluting the groundwater or air with a gas-powered pump. Photovoltaics water systems have a few moving parts so this system takes very little maintenance. Solar Powered Water Pumps have long life – usually 20 to 40 years. As long as the sun is shining solar-powered water systems never run out of fuel.
