Solar Fotovoltaik Irrigation Pump

Scheme for grant to the farmers on establishment of solar photo voltaic irrigation pump (State Sector)

Introduction

There is proposal to provide grant to the farmers on solar photo voltaic irrigation pump to strengthen irrigation facility in the state. Due to frequent power break down in the state, the irrigation facility is based on diesel based pump which has caused unprecedented increase in cost of agriculture. In this solar pump has been found useful to the farmers for irrigation.

Due to frequent power break down in the state, the irrigation facility is based on diesel based pump which has caused unprecedented increase in cost of agriculture. In this solar pump has been found useful to the farmers for irrigation.

The establishment of solar pump under this new program of the project will not only save electrical energy but also save recurring cost on fuel etc. In those area of the state where ground water is 10 meter to 70 meter deep, surface and sub mersible pump of solar photo voltaic irrigation pump work very well. Government of India and State Government is implementing carefully the scheme of grant to attract towards the scheme.

Objective of the Scheme

The purpose of installation of Solar Photovoltaic Irrigation Pump is as follows:-

  • Reduce cost of irrigation.
  • Remove problem of sources of energy, viz; Coal, Petrol/Diesel and power break down.
  • Availability of most trusted and problem free irrigation source.
  • Conservation of environment.

Details of Proposed Scheme

According to the priority of the state government, under establishment of solar pump, following type of solar pump will be made available to the farmers and established.

  • 1800 watt(2 HP) surface solar pump(AC/DC)
  • 3000 watt(3 HP) submersible solar pump(AC/DC)
  • 4800 watt(5 HP) submersible solar pump(AC)
