Solar pumps can provide water for livestock in pastures not serviced by conventional electricity. Water can be pumped from wells and boreholes or from surface streams, ponds and wetlands.
Recent research has shown a significant improvement in livestock performance when they are fenced out of surface water bodies and supplied with clean water delivered by solar pumps.
Sunmotor manufactures several models of floating and borehole pumps which offer a wide range of capacities and pumping lifts.
