Solar Irrigation

The efficient water pumping solution.

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 utilising solar-powered pumps for pumping water.

The Benefits of Solar Irrigation

In this environment of rising grid electricity costs, the decreasing cost of solar PV and battery storage are becoming increasingly applicable for rural electricity consumers. GEM Energy’s revolutionary off-grid solar irrigation installation design can get farmers through the whole growing season without having to buy from the grid, and it can work for just about any farm in the country. With its reliable hours of sunshine, Australia is the perfect place to go solar, especially in open fields where panels are seldom shaded. If you could benefit from solar powered irrigation, we service most of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, the Northern Territory and South Australia. Get a quote for your system today.

11.5 kWp Solar PV Installation

Quick Case Study

Bundaberg Wholesale Palms

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.
