Wednesday, December 26, 2012 In a bid to encourage further use of solar water pumps in Rajasthan, the state government has decided to offer more pumps to farmers. The step has been taken after looking at the response generated by use of solar water pumps by farmers, according to a TOI report.

"We are planning distribute the pumps by the end of the February. The department has already invited expressions of interest from solar pump set manufacturers. Around 12 manufacturers have been shortlisted to supply solar pump sets in rural areas," a senior official reportedly said.

As per officials, the pump will be given to the farmers at a lower price as compared to the earlier distribution. “The 3HP solar power surface pump would cost Rs .425 million while the 3HP submersible solar pump with a maximum 75-metre head would cost around Rs .485 million.”

Under the scheme, farmers will get 86 per cent subsidy on the cost of the pump, which means they will be paying only 14 per cent of the pump's cost.

Officials explained that solar pump sets are attached to the water source. The pump's solar panel converts the solar energy into electrical power, which runs the motor to pump water. It is said that a 3HP solar water pump set can save around 15 to 20 units of power every day.

"A farmer has to majorly fulfill three requirements for a solar pump subsidy - a storage source, a drip system and they should cultivate cash crops," he added. Apart from solar pumps, the scheme will also offer solar lights, which will be attached with the pumps, enabling farmers to work in the dark.
