Solar PV Pumping

Home / Solar PV Pumping / Solar PV Pumping

Pumping systems operating on solar energy

  • The amount of water pumped is directly related to the amount of solar energy available
  • The system includes a variable frequency drive that protects the operation of the pump
  • Completely replaces the generator during daylight hours
  • Can operate in rural locations with no available power lines
  • The system contains MPPT technology which utilizes the best power available

Solar pumping system can provide many benefits

  • Greatly reduce diesel consumption from operating the generators
  • Shutting down generators creates additional savings from maintenance costs
  • Most solar pumping applications require water during summer months when
  • the solar energy is at its highest
  • Nearly zero maintenance and supervision is required
  • The system is completely silent with almost no moving parts
  • Contains all protection devices such as surge and over current protection

Phoenix energy provides a detailed technical and financial study

  • Simulation analysis based on a site visit and load analysis
  • Accurate weather data for each specific location
  • Water pumped with correlation to available solar energy
  • Efficiency and performance of the solar PV system
  • Turnkey solution project from preliminary offer and design, to commissioning and testing
  • Operation and maintenance throughout the guarantee period
  • Financial study and possible application for available loan packages
