Manufacturing efficiency and technological advances have dramatically reduced the cost per watt of solar panels.
Accordingly there are now many different applications running directly from solar power. These applications range from domestic chargers for mobile phones to commercial solar powered water pumps that distribute water at remote locations where mains electricity is unavailable.
SCL Water has been involved in the sale and installation of Grundfos solar powered water pumps for over 15 years and we have many examples, particularly in Africa, where these pumps have helped communities to become healthier and more productive.
A solar powered pump can be installed on the surface next to a well, spring or river or installed at depth in a borehole intercepting an underground aquifer. Unlike conventional water pumps that are powered by mains electricity there are no ongoing running costs with a solar powered water pump.
There are multiple uses for a solar powered pump ranging from the irrigation of crops through to suppling remote communities with a sustainable supply of drinking water. Our customers require solar water pumps, be it in the UK or abroad, that are reliable, easy to install and where an excellent support infrastructure exists.
Accordingly, SCL Water became distributors and the UK specialist in the Grundfos solar water pump market in order to deliver on our customer’s key requirements.
SCL Water Ltd is the primary UK supplier of the Grundfos solar powered water pump. Including the UK we have now sold the Solar powered SQF, CRF and RSi solutions into over 40 countries with the African continent being our largest market.
