Solar water pump
A solar powered pump is a pump running on the power of the sun. A solar powered pump can be more environmentally friendly and economical in its operation compared to pumps powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE) or nuclear power.
Unlike a normal pump (such as positive displacement pumps…), the solar powered pump is actually a more of a dictionary phrase than a technical one. It is only used to describe that there's a pump, being powered by another device (such as solar panels), being powered by the renewable electricity generated from the sun (solar electricity).
A solar powered pump thus consists of 2 parts :
The actual pump
The energy source being powered by the sun
Solar PV water pumping systems are used for irrigation and drinking water in India.
