How the AgroSolar Irrigation Kit operates
The Kit is designed to pull water from any water source (lake, river, stream, well, borehole, water harvester, etc.) using solar power. The solar panels provide the pump’s electricity directly without the need for expensive batteries or inverters. Water is pumped into a raised water storage tank during the day.
When irrigation takes place during the evening, a valve on the water tank is opened and water flows down through a filtration system and onto crop root zones via high quality irrigation tape.
Do I need an existing water source?
Yes. If your farm lacks water, please contact us and we will advise on recommended options.
Does it come with security?
The AgroSolar Irrigation Kit includes a custom-designed pole-mounted security kit for the provided solar panels. The security kit raises the solar modules 3 meters above the ground to deter theft. The submersible pump may be secured using a steel-door locking system.
Do you offer installation and training?
Yes, we offer installation and training for every kit for a small additional cost.
