Solar water pumps are similar to traditional electrical pumps except that they run on solar energy and not conventional electricity or fossil fuel. The process involves generating electricity through the use of solar panels, which then powers the motor to pump out the water. Currently, 70% of households are still dependent on agriculture for their livelihood (Business Standard). In fact, the agriculture sector accounts for 18% of India’s GDP (Economic Times). It is evident that the demand for a sustainable method...
