Save on your power bills with a solar swimming pool pump. If you own a swimming pool you are probably aware that the pool pump is one of biggest energy consumer in your household. Yearly cost of $1000-$2000 are quite common for medium to large size pools.
Savings are instant for a new pool installation. You can operate a solar pool pump as single unit – instead of the conventional 230V pump. But even if you are replacing the 230V pool pump, payback periods are as short as 36 months – this includes the extra cost for the solar panels and frame. If the solar pump system is installed by an off-grid accredited installer, the system will create STCs, payable to you.
You could also keep the existing pump in parallel with the solar pump and use the old one as backup.
