Top Class Quality Solar Panels & Schneider Components make it the World Leading 3 Phase Solar Pump System for Agriculture and Rural water supply's.
We can design an implement a system for your farm, enabling you to tackle rising energy costs, offset emissions, and make better use of an abundant natural resource to produce a cleaner greener tomorrow
Environmental Benefits – By using electricity generated from solar panels, we reduce the need to generate electricity from fossil fuels like Coal,Diesel and Gas which create carbon dioxide (CO2). This can reduce the potential for global warming and can create a more sustainable cleaner energy.
Solar panels typically have a life span between 15-25 years
GO SOLAR intelligent Solar controller is an IP 66 rated controller with world class maximum power point tracking software and hardware makes it the world leading solar pump controller
We offer a quality range of framing options from roof mount, ground mount and pole mounting options.
Our Mounting Frames are Aluminium and are anodised to make sure your panels remain neatly and safely secured.
Typically solar is superior to diesel for stock and domestic applications when all costs are considered Tabel below breaksdown the factors to be considered when comparing solar pumping and diesel pumping systems.
|Criteria||Solar Pumping System||Diesel Pumping System|
|Capital costs||Equipment Costs||Equipment includes Solar array , mounting frame , solar controller, 3 Phase pump, wiring, circuit protection and piping||Equipment is limited to a generator (where applicable), 3 Phase pump , switch gear, power cables and piping|
|Installation Costs||Installation includes both pump and piping , solar frame for array, wiring ,distribution board for circuits and protection, site fencing||Installation limited to generator (where applicable), pump and piping and switch gear installasion|
|Operating costs||Energy / Diesel Fuel||None
Let the sunshine drive your pump
|Energy cost depend on the size of the motor and how many hours a day it needs to pump. (these can represent 90% of lifetime cost of a diesel pump|
|Ongoing Maintenance||Maintenance cost are limited to array cleaning and inspecting the system, pump and electric motor||Scheduled maintenace of generator/diesel motor, including refuelling , engine services, checking pressures, cleaning air filter, and pump and electric motor|
|Equipment Replacement||Solar modules offer a 20-25 year performance guarantee to 80-85% output. Solar pump and controllers offera warranty ranging from 12-24 months with an expected operating life of five year.||Diesel generator would be expected to need replacement every 20,000 hours on average, Between 5,000 - 50,000 hours, depending on the quality of the engine and how well it has been maintained, AC pumps carry a warranty of 12-24 months|
|Personnel Costs||Limited site visits are required as maintenance is minimal||Site visits are required for refuelling, starting up/shutting down the generator, and for more operational check and maintenance|
|Safety Risks||Limited to safety risks with the operation of a solar pump||Safety risk associated with fuel storage and transporting, fire risk to pump and generator|
We need a resilient energy system that provides energy independence and protection of our natural environmental resources to help protect future generations.
All New Zealanders can participate in the transition to this sustainable energy system that powers a low carbon footprint.
