Can the Simple Pump motors be used with solar power?

Yes, the Simple Pump motors can be used in a solar power setup.

Our DC Motor is designed to be frugal in its use of power and is ideal for use with solar power. Provided the site is arranged so that the PV panels have a good year-round line of sight to the sun, only one or two panels are required, along with batteries and other components.

You can buy a complete solar motor system from us, or supply the motor and electronics yourself.

Benefits of using batteries rather than direct connection with linear current booster

  • Not limited to sunlight periods of the day for pump operation.
  • Stored power in the batteries allows operation over multiple days when sunlight is less than ideal.
  • Batteries handle the amperage draw spike better than the linear current booster.
