During hot months and in hot areas the requirement for water is high. Private households and farms need stable and consistent water supply. Solar water pumps are electrically driven pumping systems, powered by photovoltaic panels. Solar Water Pumps use generated electricity to pump water from wells, rivers or from any source of water. The common applications are irrigation, However it's also used for Drinking and cooking purpose.

A solar water pump installation is a basic system consists of a water pump (submersible or surface pump), solar panels and tubes for water flow; in addition most solar water pump systems don’t use batteries. To save costs, the majority of solar powered water pumps can run directly from the solar panels. Electricity aimed at running the water pump is not stored in batteries, but the water is instead stored in a water tank or pond. With This way the water is stored and can be used anytime required. Submersible water pumps can be used to lift water from great depths of up to 200 meter deep. Surface water pumps can be used to pump surface water of 3-8 meter deep. Due to the simplicity of solar powered water pump systems, this technology is reliable, and requires little maintenance.
