What is a Solar Water Pump?
A photovoltaic solar water pump runs on the electricity generated by solar PV panels to drive water from ponds, deep wells, etc. up with the primary purpose of irrigating crops.
The Jalkiran initiative was taken keeping in mind the core of Mahindra’s philosophy of impacting rural lives positively.
Jalkiran – The Solar Water Pump is designed by Mahindra Susten With advanced features like: protection from Dry Run, low power, overload, overheating, and lighting arrester.
It provides optimum performance with high starting torque and high output frequency controller.
HOW IT WORKS?
A Solar Water Pump (SWP) system comprises of Photovoltaic (PV) modules, a pump controller, and a motor pump. The PV cell captures sunlight and converts it into energy, which is then modulated and regulated by the controller so as to supply suitable and clean power to run the pump.
The pump can extract water from an open well, bore-well, stream or underground reservoir. Typically, a 5HP pump can discharge 1,20,000 litres of water a day at 50 metres of head.
