Agricultural Irrigation with Solar Energy

Agricultural irrigation is the regulated delivery of water to plants for the purpose of plant cultivation. This procedure includes providing plants the water they need to grow, develop, and generate goods.


Nowadays, where water is of critical significance and demand, the most fundamental challenge, regardless of the product to be cultivated, is water and delivering the energy necessary when this water meets the plant. The primary goal of solar energy-supported agricultural irrigation activities is to reduce or eliminate the energy. The fundamental reason for this is that the energy necessary for agricultural irrigation is either highly expensive or cannot be delivered consistently owing to geographical constraints.

The fundamental characteristics of a solar-powered agricultural irrigation system;

-Solar Panels: Solar panels are the primary component of solar-powered agricultural irrigation systems. Photovoltaic cells turn sunlight energy into electrical energy in these panels.

-Solar Pump Inverters: These are energy converters that transmit power from solar panels to irrigation system pumps and guarantee their steady functioning.

-Generation of electricity: When exposed to sunlight, solar panels generate energy. This electrical energy is either stored in a battery or sent directly to the irrigation system.

-Efficiency and Sustainability: When compared to conventional diesel or electricity-driven irrigation systems, agricultural irrigation powered by solar energy is more ecologically friendly and sustainable. Solar energy is environmentally friendly and cost-free.

-Use in rural areas: Solar agricultural irrigation makes it possible to cultivate land in rural locations or regions without enough electricity infrastructure. As a result, it offers farmers in rural regions several benefits.

-Cost Savings: Over time, solar irrigation for agriculture lowers energy costs and gives farmers a financial boost.


Solar-powered water pumps may be utilized for a variety of reasons, not just in agricultural irrigation, but also in a wide range of other activities.

Many breeders in America, Australia, and South Africa, for example, utilize these water pumping devices, which are readily portable and generate electricity, to provide water to their animals in locations where cabling is difficult and expensive. They are ideal for irrigation in small farms, greenhouses, and gardens, and as a source of water in farmhouses.

So what happens if it’s cloudy outside?

Of course, bright days produce the best results for all solar energy systems. Although the system continues to operate even in cloudy weather, the efficiency of the water drawn from the pump will decrease. Because of this, solar pumping systems allow for storage from two separate perspectives. The installation of a sizable water tank that will function as a reservoir is the most cost-effective and dependable solution. There won’t be any issues with water supply at night or on days with little sunshine thanks to the extra water that will be poured into the tank during the day. As a result, if you are going to create a warehouse system, it should be large enough to satisfy somewhat more than your daily requirements. Another option is to store the daytime energy generated by solar panels in batteries and use it as a reserve to draw water at night or on cloudy days. Although this system is quite dependable, it will necessitate more fees and upkeep.
