WorldWater Unveils Solar Irrigaton Pumping System

December 12, 2004 by Jeff Shepard

WorldWater and Power Corp. (Pennington, NJ), a maker of solar energy systems, unveiled the a large solar-powered, irrigation pumping system during a commissioning ceremony at Seley Ranches, Borrego Springs, CA.

The proprietary and patented AquaMax™ system drives a 200 HP pumping system at the Seley Ranches facility. The 267 kW system is grid-connected, and can operate independently from the solar array, from the electrical grid, or from both sources if necessary. This also allows the system to "net meter," that is, return excess solar electricity to the utility for credit if it is not required in the field.
