The Sun: The Most Production Of Solar Energy
The big ways of irrigation just aren’t need there, it is needed on a much smaller scale. For this drip irrigation is a popular method (Irrigation). It is also popular on the big scale too. Drip irrigation is when water is pumped through small plastic pipes with small holes drilled in them and water slowly drips out by the plant.

One advantage would be the low cost of the system compared to the diesel system. The amount of fuel needed to run a diesel system is a lot more than people think. The cost of all this fuel is immense as well. The cost of running a solar powered pump is pretty much free. As long as the sun is shining the solar panel is producing power which then runs the pump. Another benefit to using the solar powered irrigation pump is the lack of maintenance. With the diesel or fuel powered pumps usually a lot of maintenance is required to keep them going over a long period of time. Solar powered water pumps are available in many different pumping powers. Some can pump a few gallons per minute while others can pump a lot
