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. These solar water pumps have a wide application in irrigation, livestock and as domestic pumps for supply of fresh drinking water. As a leading solar water pumps suppliers in Kenya, Grekkon Limited is committed to supplying affordable solar water pumps in Kenya and the rest of the world.

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.
Application of solar water pumps
- Irrigation. Mainly drip irrigation, surface irrigation and overhead irrigation for small to medium scale farmers.
- Livestock drinking water.
- Domestic water consumption
- Residentials in flats
- Pumping water into dams and reservoirs.
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.
If maintained well, submersible solar panels have the potential of lasting for many years without replacement.
