This book includes Case studies of Solar Water Pumping System in Gujarat and Cost-Benefit Analysis of Diesel vs. Solar Pump.
A solar water pump is a pump running on electricity generated by photovoltaic panels or the radiated 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 a 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. Solar-powered water pumps can deliver drinking water as well as water for livestock or irrigation purposes.
