Solar IrrigationHalf of the energy produced around the world is used to operate pumps.
What are solar-powered pumps?
Solar-powered pumps for pumping water are a versatile, alternative solution to diesel generator pumps. Our customers typically use solar-powered pumps for crop irrigation, community water supplies, fish farming, and agriculture.
GEM Energy can help you make your operation more cost-effective, reliable and sustainable by utilizing solar-powered pumps for pumping water.

GEM Energy installed 11.5 kW of Solar PV with a 7.5 kW pump for feeding water to crops. The larger system size ensures that enough power is produced to offset their costs.
If the customer had chosen a 7.5kW system to match the size of the pump, they would only come close to offsetting their usage in the middle of the day when the solar system is peaking.
