We went looking for the best partner, that we could trust, and found a company in Kenyas which could deliver both safety and leading-edge technology: Roomny Solar.Clients - Ministry
Solar pumps are an energy efficient, environmentally friendly way to pump water for a variety of domestic and commercial purposes, including agricultural and residential irrigation and cattle or livestock watering. Solar pumps are easy to install and require virtually no maintenance, and they can have a lifespan of roughly 20 years, so after the initial set up costs their servicing requirements are virtually nil.
Aside from the economic and environmental benefits of solar powered water pumps, there are a number of other advantages that make them more attractive than diesel or electric powered pumps. For instance:
You do not need to add batteries in order for this pump to work, however, the 3rd gen controllers have the battery function built in so adding batteries at a later stage is also possible.
A solar pump is designed to run directly off solar panels without the need to use batteries or mains power. The controllers supplied with the pumps can vary the speed of the motor which will in turn increase and decrease the flow rate according to the output for the solar panels.
Our systems solar modules have a power output warranty of 25 years and give very little trouble. This all depends on the water quality also, if you water has sand and find particles this can prematurely wear out your pumps. It is important to always know what your well is doing based on the system you set up. It is important to give us the best information possible so we can size the system based on your well output. We have systems that will shut off your pump in the well if the water level gets to low, and also we have sensors that will turn off your pump when your tank is full. This will keep your pump from running unnecessarily and wasting valuable water.
Solar panel systems do generate solar electricity in cloudy weather but output is diminished. Flat plate solar arrays respond to a 180-degree window, direct sunlight is not needed to generate solar electricity. Home solar systems can even generate 50-70% of their rated output under a bright overcast.
