The system is provided with1800 W solar PV panel (24 nos. X 75 Wp) and 2 HP centrifugal DC mono-block / AC submersible with inverter. The average water delivery of 2 HP solar pump will be around 1.38 to 1.40 lakh litre per day, for a suction head of 6 metres and dynamic head of 10 metres. The size of suction & delivery lines is 2.5 inches (62.5 mm).
