Discussion » Energy Efficient Solar Irrigation Pumps for Bangladesh
Half of the year they remain unused though each systems are very expensive to afford
During the monsoon we would like to use them for households or other purposes
Tie them into Nanogrids or minigrids
Make the system intelligent
Well the problem is applicable to wider scope, if you could provide average site details as follows:
What is Average solar radiation, average wind speed, average depth of water to be pumped, Crop pattern, Alternate fuel replace, Financial incentives ,Availability of Import/Export meter for feeding Nano Grid or micro grid.
We @claroenergy have installed several systems where the beneficiary is able to use the solar pumps for domestic use as well (if field and house are very close). Also we have been successful in developing solar pump trolleys (2HP/1.8kW or smaller) that can be moved from one field to another and can be used for different purposes. We are looking to enter into Bangladesh and are at an early stage of market assessment.
