Solar Powered Irrigation Systems

Some of the problems faced in the agriculture sector are to provide irrigation water for agricultural lands and the gradual increase in solar costs used in irrigation water pumps, thus there have been a clear tendency for installing solar photovoltaic systems to feed electric water pumps instead of those running on diesel.

Solar power irrigation systems consist of electric water pumps that are fed from the solar PV system, to pump the water through pipes until it reaches the crops.
