A solar-powered pump is a pump running on electricity generated by photovoltaic  panels or the radiated thermal energy available from collected sunlight as opposed to grid electricity or diesel run water pumps.The operation of solar powered pumps is more economical mainly due to the lower operation and maintenance costs and has less environmental impact than pumps powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE). Solar pumps are useful where grid electricity is unavailable and alternative sources (in particular wind) do not provide sufficient energy.

A solar powered pump is a pump running on the power of the sun. It makes efficient use of solar energy and converts it into electrical energy
for pumping water to great heights.A solar powered pump can be very environmentally friendly and economical in its operation. This system operates
on power generated using solar PV (photovoltaic) system. The photovoltaic array converts the solar energy into electricity, which is used for
running the motor pump set. The pumping system draws water from the open well, bore well, pond etc. The water pumping system can be used to irrigate
land, when the water is to be pumped from a depth of well or a pond.
