Photovoltaic Water Pumps

Our first solar electric installation was a water pump – using modules from Arco Solar, a Monitor ZA jack pump and batteries – it worked!  Today we provide quality photovoltaic direct drive pumps from established manufacturers, with controls to match power output and motor needs.  From deep well pumping to pressure systems to garden pond pumps, we can provide the right pump for your needs.

Please visit our consulting page for a Water Pumping Worksheet. Our dedicated staff with 30 years experience in Solar Electric Systems will review your information and specify the right equipment for your needs.
