The Sunlabob Solar Water Pump System is comprised of several PV (photovoltaic) panels that produce direct current (DC) electricity when exposed to sunlight. The DC current is collected by the wiring in the panel. The current is either used to supply a DC pump, which pumps water whenever the sun shines, or the current is stored in batteries (for a battery-coupled pumping system). All the pumped water is stored in a water tank so that there is a constant water supply, even in bad weather conditions and at night when there is insufficient power to generate the solar water pumps.
A solar-powered water pump differs from a regular water pump only in that it uses the sun's energy to supply electricity for the pump. Solar-powered water pumps represent a higher initial investment; however, over a period of five years they offer cost benefits due to zero fuel costs and minimal maintenance costs compared to AC pumps that run with a diesel-powered generator.
