GLRPPR Sector Resource: A Rural Electric Co-op's Experience With Photovoltaic Systems for Livestock Water Pumping

Title:
A Rural Electric Co-op's Experience With Photovoltaic Systems for Livestock Water Pumping

Abstract:
This report describes a study researching the feasibility of implementing a photovoltaic (PV) system for use in pumping water for livestock that took place in a rural Nebraskan community. The local power authority purchased the equipment and then rented it out to farmers who wished to convert their water pumping systems to solar power. This site states the findings of the study as well as points to be considered when installing such a system.
