Eliminate high fuel and electricity costs with solar pumps!

Solar water pumps in Kenya are a type of pump that use the power of the sun to draw water from deep borehole wells, shallow wells, rivers or dams and pump them up to a storage tank or to certain destination. Solar water pumps in Kenya use photovoltaic panels to generate electricity that is used for pumping water from the source. Grekkon submersible pumps are affordable, greener and more reliable than petrol and diesel water pumps.

Solar Water Pumps for Agriculture

Solar water pumps for agriculture are used for pumping irrigation water for crop farming. Agricultural solar water pumps have a flow rate ranging from 1.5m3 to 20m3/her depending on the water demands. Grekkon agricultural solar pumps also come with a warranty.

Advantages of Solar Water Pumps

  • Low operation cost because there is lack of fuel
  • Little or no maintenance costs because the parts are stationary
  • There is zero pollution and hence environmentally safe.
  • Submersible pumps last for a very long time.


  • High initial costs compared with petrol and diesel
  • Theft especially in some areas.
  • Cannot pump water when it is dark. This challenge can be solved by installing a battery charging system.

Pump Maintenance

Solar submersible water pump has low maintenance cost compared to their petrol and diesel counter parts. Regular checks is however encouraged by checking for faults, cleaning of pump filters, clearing of bush around the solar panels etc.

    Good Afternoon,

    I would like to know the cost of a complete solar pumping system for a 150M deep borehole. Inclusive of pump, panels, inverter and any other required accessories. I am planning to sink a borehole at Laikipia and I will definitely require your services in solarizing the borehole.
