Your Solar Farmers

Tips and Vital Points for your Solar Water Pumping Project

Image

 

 (1) Stay Away from Factory Rejected Solar Module Sellers

I have been active in Solar and Agricultural industry for quite a long time (6 years) , and recently have I come across some VENDORS, who are Selling Factory Rejected Solar Panels at Cheaper price at Rs. 30/Watt. Even cheapest Chinese made come at Rs. 45/Watt not inclusive tax. And I saw a forum right here where people were queuing in to buy that stuff… Make Sure You Don’t buy from such sellers, they do give fake certificates and fake warranties and even fake/rejected solar modules but that would be like throwing your money on Garbage,

(2) Sizing is Essential: over sizing or under sizing can leave you with a mess

 While Going Solar, it’s an entirely new paradigm, so Sizing becomes very crucial part of the project as much as every component. If you are currently using a 5hp submersible pump to get water from 100feet below the bore well, it is not important that Solar Water Pumping Will require exact 5hp pump. Don’t go with the formulae that I am running a 5hp motor so . my solar water pump requirement is 5hp..  Get your water consumption pattern sized up. Your irrigation water requirements depends on crops you are currently growing, you may grow in future, and your soil type and soil moisture contents, and rain water availability. It’s a very complex calculation, so I wont go in details, but note, that there are many factors that play role in your irrigation water requirement. And your water pump should confirm to this needs. Take into account the free or nearly free power you are usually getting from government.

Imagine a scenario where you spent say 10lacs for running a 10hp submersible pump. Now suppose you pumped daily with your old 10hp pump for almost 3 hours daily. now here your solar pump is capable of running from Sun Rise to Sunset…nonstop. So it is producing more water than you currently need it. you have to close the pump after 4 hours of pumping, you either have to build a tank, but how much water that tank will hold? For how many days, how huge will you make the tank? Now you realize that you really didn’t need the extra power. And you are not even able to use almost, all the free power that government provides. And there are limited options, here. Either to sell half of your solar panels at loss, or to move them to your home, where you could use that power for your home electricity needs.

(3) If you have doubts start small

Don’t go huge, at first Attempt: if you try asking anyone, including me for 5hp 10hp motors, the project cost is going to be over INR 5,00,000 and that itself may disappoint you from thinking twice about Solar, and that way you will not be able to harvest golden fruits of Solar Energy. so start small. go after keeping in mind your present and future water consumption. go with someone who can SEE what is your Current Water Consumption Pattern/ what is your Electricity Consumption Pattern, and based on That can help you size your project in such a way that you will not be fearing where to stock extra water, or what to do with extra power that your huge solar panel array produces, while you can’t even use it…

 Remember you can always go up, but there are limited options for Coming down With Solar:  

Even if you need five hour pumping daily, with a 5hp motor, my friend, first go with a 2hp solar set. This will help you when govt. grid will fail, this will help you when govt. will impose fierce cuts on power. And in any case when government won’t be able to supply you with the free power. Still we at Bati Energy recommend our customers that they use as much government power as is given to them. You can always add solar Panels in your Solar Array and Run higher capacity Submersible pump

(4) You are not buying a USE and Throw item.

You are investing for a minimum of 25years of power Security. Stuck with this important information, there are sooo many factors, very important factors that will come into play for deciding right solar panel for your need, your environment, your location, and your budget, and your farm.. There are also technical factors, that will be quiet important in choosing the right panel for your project. keep this in your mind, that you will not go with any solar panels or solar water pumping system providers, many businesses are in business simply to make money out of your aspiration, and very few are there who can guide you thoroughly on your project, who can Size up your water requirement for irrigation purpose and who will understand all your needs in Every possible scenario and details, and based on that will provide you a customized solution.

(5) There is no Ready-Made with Solar 

You want a pair of clothes and you can buy in the market ready-made. It is not the same way with solar. Solar Radiation changes according to locations, seasons, times of days and with many other factors, so there is simply no ready-made thing here that you can pay and buy. Customization is extremely important for not only solar water pumping system but any solar power project. The pump made for Gujarat will only be able to work at 70-80% capacity in Delhi. There simply is no ready made with Solar. The solar panels which are made for cold regions will not perform better in Desert.

 

Dear Friends,

There was a heartfelt need, that farmers are wrongfully directed in solar water pumping industry. And there in the market, solar panels are available that won’t last beyond 5years. Therefore Ii thought I should at least try to make you aware how Solar Works.

Solar Power and Wind Power In India

While Discussing Solar, The Bigger Question Raised over and over again Is Cost.

If someone told you a year ago that solar Is costly, and you stopped giving attention to solar developments?

Now I tell you, Keep Watching Solar Developments across India and Globe, and You Will Find that Solar Prices Have come down Significantly, due to Supply -demans gaps, Continued Innovations and Drop in Solar Grade Silicon Prices from USD 400/kg In 2008 to USD28/kg Now!

Other Reason, Why you should Keep Looking at Solar Is :Coal Prices has been trippled, A rise of 300% in Past 3 years.

Govt. Of India Is Considering derregulation of Dieself Prices. So if you are using diesel gensets for backup power supply, it will become harder and harder on your pockets…

Now you have to think Where Diesel and Coal Prices Can go From here, if you look at past 10years for the clue, You will find that Prices will go higher and higher and make new records, and burn your pockers for sure…

Can you Make a LongTerm Investment Now? Then you are looking at Options…

Wind and Solar

Let me tell you about cost,

for a solar system 120-150 units monthly you will spend about 2-2.4 Lacs In India

For a Windgen System of same out Put, you will spend about 1.5 Lacs, but you have to make sure that wind speed in your area is at least above 5m/s for considering Wind..

Empowering Rural Communities!

My Dear Global Netizens,

Just a week ago i asked a question on Linkedin “How to Empower Rural India and Ensure, Inclusive Growth?”

you may please share your views at above give link.

I have been thinking and thinking a lot on this matter, and yesterday night I recieved some ideas, from somewhere that makes the matter fairly Easy to tackle and It has great amounts of advantages while going about Empowering Rural Communities..

I thought, how ? as a Private corporation we can Empower Rural India, while ensuring Satisfaction, very less resistance, and doing a real good work… the answers stunned me..

The core of the problem lies with the way the Gram-Panchayats, (Village-govt.) and National Govt. operates on a Micro and Macro level…

What happens when People are taxed? items are taxed? services and products are taxed?

The money travels from an individual who earned it with hard work, through various departments of tehsil, districts and state levels and finally makes it to the National Treasury…

Then while govt. releases funds for developmental works and infra projects and health care or education projects, the same money passes through various ministerial levels through number of paperworks and Pocket-filling and the funds are gradually eaten up by various monster actively wanting to fill up their bullies,  and finally when it reaches to that project manager or individual or an NGO, it’s not the money in the same amount and size that was sent down from the highest levels, but it’s a very tiny part of it… in most cases, this money remains same in size but the individual or the project owner has to pay various forms or fees and bribes in order to get that check signed and delivered to him… and this is how it goes on and on and on…

I’m not saying the whole govt. is corrupt, but as a small drop of poison in a glass of milk, makes the whole glass poisonous, the same way even one single authority or lower level individual , who is part of the system if becomes and acts corrupt, it ends up spoiling the whole system…

Friends, this is dirty, bitter yet true reality of most parts of Democratic world and governments. by the way I support whatever information is exposed through Wikileaks, and types of operations..

so! how do we change the picture?

Cut the flow! get the money collected in Village “X” invested in the same Village “X” in minimum period of time.

Create and encourage leadership at micro-level… let them take care of their own taxed funds and development programmes, support them whenever and wherever necessary…

Create an Active Link between these Micro-Level-Leaders, and involve Rural Public to Plan and Execute the Projects…

This can be done! but i don’t think current day politics will allow it to happen…

there are people out there with vested interests who want to keep things rolling in the same manner as they are…

………. what do you say my friend? ……..

how can we make this happen?
