Solar for agriculture

Water is a prime need in agricultural sector. Pumps that extract water from the earth are either electricity based or diesel based. Due to highly interrupted electricity supply and rising fuel prices, irrigation has become a major concern for the farmers. Solar PV pumps are a rising trend in Indian agricultural sector.

PV powered pumping systems offer a reliable and low maintenance solution to the farmers. The solar PV powered water-pumping system (DC Surface suction, DC floating, and DC or AC submersibles) can offer a genuine solution to the problem to power the water pumpsfor irrigation.

India has about 15 million grid-powered pump-sets and close to 7 million diesel-powered pumps. However, only about 7500 solar pumping systems have been installed for agricultural use in India.
