Solar Powered Irrigation Pumps
A solar powered drip irrigation system makes it possible to grow blackberries in this dry California region
Solar powered irrigation pumps make agriculture possible in areas that previously could not be farmed. Innovations in solar pump design now make all kinds of irrigation possible. Drip irrigation, sprinklers, micro-emitters, flood irrigation, even center-pivot irrigation systems can be powered without fuel, and without a connection to an electrical grid.
Solar irrigation pumps can help increase crop yield.
A recent Stanford University study in Benin found that “solar powered drip irrigation significantly augments both household income and nutritional intake, particularly during the dry season, and is cost effective compared to other technologies.”
Many studies have found that solar irrigation pumps cost considerable less run (no fuel) and require much less maintenance (fewer moving parts). To see some of the studies comparing solar irrigation pumps to diesel irrigation pumps, click here.
Our engineers will design a system for your particular needs, including your crop or livestock requirements, your water source, the amount of sun your area receives, soil conditions, and your terrain. Contact Providence to discover what solar powered irrigation can do for you.
Solar Powered Water Pumps
Solar powered water pumps from Providence can lift water thousands of feet, and across many miles.
They provide water for crop irrigation, for livestock, or for people in even the most remote locations.
Powered entirely by the sun, solar pumps need no fuel, no generator, and no connection to an electric grid. These systems are designed for many years of flawless performance and require very little attention.
Providence has partnered with the foremost designer of submersible and surface mounted solar water pumps to offer sustainable and economical solutions for water supply management. No other solar powered water pumps can match the capabilities of these pumps.
Sustainable Approach to Water Pumping and Distribution Systems: Solar powered agricultural water systems can be scaled for small farm sizes for 1m³ per (1 cubic meter, or 264 gallons) per hour to a megawatt or larger providing 1,000m³ per hour (264,000 gallons per hour) or more. Water systems can be provided to pump from wells, rivers or bodies of water. Our high efficiency submersible and pressure pumps are the most efficient and durable in the world.
