Why Irrigation solar pumping?
The need to irrigate agricultural land efficiently, economically and sustainably is critical for food security.
Solar is often known to provide power for small applications such as lighting, water heating and battery charging. Solar has also been known for small pumping applications such as shallow wells. This has now changed with new solar pumping technologies allowing pumping from over 400m deep boreholes and deliveries over 600m3 of water per day. Solar pumping can therefore be used for just about any pumping requirement including irrigation where huge volumes of water are required.
A big challenge with solar has been the initial investment cost, however, with the greatly reduced cost of solar products, the solar option has become quite affordable and extremely cost effective. A complete solar system will cost as low as Kshs. 150,000.00 for a shallow well. In many cases, the solar option is even cheaper than a generator powered unit.
The benefits of solar pumping cannot be over emphasized. There will be no need for running a diesel generator or applying for KPLC power, and yet no monthly power bills from running your pump. The return on investment now is about a year and half or less.
Solar irrigation solutions produce no emissions, generate no noise. Solar power for irrigation is more reliable than wind power while being significantly cheaper and cleaner than diesel power. LORENTZ solar pumps complement the design of drip irrigation systems, delivering water precisely and efficiently to individual plants. Very high volumes of water for large scale irrigation can also be supported through a wide range of pump sizes and vertical lifts.
LORENTZ solar irrigation solutions are a very attractive alternative to diesel powered pumping and support sustainable agriculture.
