Top 11 Best Solar Powered Water Pumps of 2018

Solar water pumps are those that depend on solar energy to operate. They need the energy to pump water from the water source to the desired location. In other words, a solar powered water pump basically runs on sunlight. It functions just as all solar enabled devices, that is, through the conversion of solar energy into electrical energy.

In other words, the electrical energy realized in a solar water pump is used to pump water. A point worth noting is that there are two types of solar water pumps. The first type uses the energy directly from the solar panel to pump the water whereas the other type uses the power that is stored in batteries to do the same. Nonetheless, it is beneficial and cost-effective to use the energy directly from the sun as this reduces costs. Further to this, the use of solar to enable water pumps is one way to stay eco-friendly. This article highlights 11 of the best solar powered water pumps of 2018. Lets take a quick look at each of them.
