What are Agricultural Solar Energy Systems?

These are solar energy projects implemented to meet the electricity needs of agricultural lands that are far from the grid. There are submersible pumps in boreholes used for irrigating agricultural lands. By using water drilling to utilize groundwater, a high yield of crops from agricultural fields is achieved. Water drilling is the process of extracting underground water to the surface. The productivity of lands without irrigation significantly decreases.

In many agricultural lands, there is no electricity available, and in some, high electricity bills make it impossible to use submersible pumps. With solar-powered agricultural irrigation systems, our farmers can provide the water needed for their fields without incurring costs.

Thanks to solar energy, our farmers can cultivate more productive crops without worrying about the cost of electricity bills. At this point, solar energy systems are the biggest supporter of our farmers.

"Advantages of Agricultural Solar Energy Systems

In addition to providing financial benefits to their investors, they contribute to a sustainable energy future by offering significant benefits such as reducing environmental impact and energy independence.

  • Savings on Energy Bills
    There is no dependency on the grid. Agricultural systems are supported by the government.
  • Continuity
    Can provide energy without any time limitations.
  • Investment
    The investment cost turns into profit in a very short time compared to generators and beet motors used for electricity needs in fields.

The Importance of Land Selection in Solar-Powered Agricultural Irrigation

Agricultural solar energy projects are implemented to meet the electricity needs of farmland areas that lack grid electricity. In these lands, irrigation is usually conducted using fossil fuel-based energies, which are both costly and noisy. In contrast, agricultural irrigation with Solar Energy Systems (SES) is more economical, as well as being silent and environmentally friendly.

Not all the energy from the sun is reflected onto the earth's surface. 25% of the incoming rays are reflected back by the atmosphere and clouds, another 25% is scattered in the atmosphere due to diffusion, 15% is absorbed by the atmosphere, 8% is reflected back into space by the earth's albedo or its capacity to reflect electromagnetic energy, and 27% heats the earth's surface.

Only 1 in 2,000,000 of the energy emitted by the sun is reflected onto the earth. Even this 1% of the infinite energy source that is the sun is powerful enough to heat our entire world. Solar energy not only heats our planet but also brings many 'solutions' along with it. One of the areas where solar energy is used is agriculture.

Water Management plays a significant role in ensuring that the water resources stored in our country are used most efficiently, preventing damage to the environment and other natural resources. In field conditions, information needed for the efficient operation of crop watering and drainage systems is produced. Efforts to enhance performance in irrigated agriculture continue with the development of new technologies for the design and operation of new irrigation systems. Efforts are being made to reduce the risk of excessive water demand in irrigated areas by increasing irrigation efficiency and reusing irrigation water and other wastewater resources for agriculture.

Selection of Agricultural Irrigation Pumps

In agricultural irrigation, it is important to use a pump that meets the needs. Different types of pumps are manufactured for this purpose.

In areas without electricity, submersible pumps can be operated with solar panels to meet water needs.

Another consideration in pump selection is the location of water extraction and the distance it needs to be pumped. The distances over which the water will be distributed after extraction are calculated for pump selection. Every pump has a characteristic curve.

In agricultural irrigation pump curves:

  • The pumping distance of the pump
  • The amount of water tonnage it will provide at the pumping distance
  • The inch size of the pump's outlet
  • The HP (power) information of the pump are included

In field irrigation, irrigation pumps are set up with solar panels, driver inverters, and construction based on their horsepower. Thus, the energy expended by the pumps is generated through solar panels. This way, agricultural irrigation pumps are operated with solar energy from 08:00 in the morning until 18:00 in the evening. Since field irrigation pumps have different energy consumption values, the number of solar panels is determined based on the horsepower (hp) of the pump.

State Support in Agricultural Irrigation with GES

Certain financial institutions offer credit for the investment cost of solar-powered agricultural irrigation systems. This allows our farmers to own a solar energy system without spending their own resources, comfortably paying off the credit from harvest to harvest with low-interest rates.
