Technological advances towards more efficient and environmentally conscious solutions have reached almost all strata of human habitation, including the oldest human profession; farming. In this article, Mr Gupta discusses Shakti solar water pumps and why you should be using them.

Shakti solar water pumps are used throughout the world. Popular on farms and rural areas, these pumps provide water for domestic use, and for agricultural and livestock production.

One of the main challenges in some countries is the difficulty of extracting water in areas that have no grid power supply.

This process can be more expensive if you use wind turbines, and more labor intensive if you use livestock for turning the waterwheels.

By using a Shakti solar water pump you can more easily save money, more efficiently utilise your resources, and extract and supply water for all your needs.

Here are four reasons to start using Shakti solar water pumps:

1. Multifunctionality

A Shakti solar water pump can be used to extract water for animals, plants and human consumption, and for farming and irrigation. Since the need for water is greater on hot, sunny days, solar technology is an obvious choice for this application.

This is a simple, reliable process that requires almost no maintenance by the user. During the night that same system can also be connected to the grid and used to pump water.

2. Easy to use

Those who have already worked with water pumps know that it is not a difficult system. Water pumping systems powered by solar energy are similar to any other pumping system. The only difference is the type of energy that feeds it: solar energy.

Shakti solar water pumps usually consist of photovoltaic panels (modules), a HES motor, a bore pump, and a solar controller. Solar water pumping arrays are fixed, mounted or sometimes even placed on sun-tracking machines to increase the time and volume of pumping.

3. Reduced price

The price of solar water pumps has decreased in recent years. This means that not only will you recover your investment faster, but you will also be able to use the pump for free for a longer period of time, which basically means free water harvesting for a long time.

4. Efficiency and quality

The best photovoltaic water pumping systems installed can provide more than 30 years of reliable and continuous service. Most of the solar modules come with a 20–25 year warranty and an average usable life of 30–35 years.
