Our solar water pump price in Kenya is determined by these specifications; water flow rate, depth of installation/ head, and the horse power (Hp). Grekkon Limited’s solar water pumps for agriculture vary in accordance to a wide variety of water flow rates; from shallow well to deep borehole models. These submersible solar-water pumps for sale in Kenya serve every water pumping system. Each is a volume water pump
Our borehole submersible solar pump prices in Kenya depend on the depth, and flow rate of the well. Cheaper submersible water pumps for sewage water extraction are available too.
What to consider in solar water pump price
1. Power rating
Each borehole solar water pump has a motor. This motor’s power rating is provided in Kilowatts (kW) or Horsepower (Hp) and this determines the number of solar panels used to power the pump. For example, a pump that has a power rating of 2,700 watts will use 10 solar panels of 400 watts each. Note that the solar panels provide 4,000 watts, more than the 2,700 watts required. The reason for this is to compensate for any power loss, and ensure that what gets to the solar pump’s motor is 2,700 watts
This is the pressure rating provided in meters. It is a measure of how high the solar pump pushes up a given volume of water vertically at various depths. Your solar pump for irrigation will have the head indicated as the minimum to maximum range and tied to a specific water volume discharge rate. For example 5 cubic liters per hour at 50M to 1.2 cubic liters per hour at 250M. This will be illustrated on the label as 5M3– 1.2M3| 50M-250M
3. Flow rate or discharge rate
This is the volume of water the solar water pump evacuates at a given pressure. A range is provided for this as illustrated in (2) above. The larger the submersible solar water pump, the greater the discharge rate. For any given solar-powered water pump, there is an inverse relationship between the discharge rate and the depth or height of pumping. The volume of water discharged decreases for every increase in pumping depth or height

For solar submersible water pumps for deep well below 80M, we provided tailored units based on the test pumping results of the borehole
How to install a solar water pump
Step 1. Study the borehole well test pumping report
Step 2. Select the pump with the recommended dynamic head and flow rate as per the test pumping report
Step 3. Note the pump setting depth from the test pumping report
Step 4. Gather the right cabling for the pump
Step 5. Match the right number of solar panels by multiplying the wattage indicated on the pump by 1.2. This is to allow for maximum power flow to the pump
Solar-powered water pumps FAQs
I. How much is solar water pump in Kenya?
The solar water pump price depends on the features listed above; power rating, head, and flow rate. It can be a low-cost solar water pump that costs Kes 15,000, and or a borehole solar water pump as much as Kes 1,500,000
Solar pump prices are varied according to this
II. How much is a solar panel in Kenya?
Our price is Kes 50 per watt
III. What is a DC water pump?
A direct current water pump is one that uses a direct current from a solar panel or battery to push irrigation water
IV. Do you sell any portable solar water pump in Kenya?
Yes our shallow well solar water pumps are portable
V. Is it a low-volume high-pressure water pump?
Not all. Some of our submersible solar water pumps are high volume high-pressure water pumps. They have a high water flow rate. Most are high volume high-pressure pumps with a high water flow rate
VI. What is the best solar-powered water pump?
It depends on the individual’s use
VII. How does a solar pump work?
Solar energy from the sun is received on the panels. This energy as a direct current is fed to the motor to pump out the water
VIII. Do solar pumps work at night?
No, they don’t, unless powered by an external battery
IX. Which solar pump is the best?
To determine the most appropriate submersible solar water pump for a client, the following information will be provided
- Depth of the well or borehole
- The water level in the well or borehole
- Water requirement or use per day
X. What are the disadvantages of solar water pumping?
- The initial set up cost is expensive
- If placed in an insecure location, the risk of theft is high
- It does not pump at night or when it gets very cloudy
XI. Can I connect a pump directly to a solar panel?
No you cannot because they both require different voltages and current
