Solar for Community Pool Pump

Postby championc » Thu Jun 06, 2019 12:18 pm

Hi all,

It seems a bit of a no-brainer to run a pool pump off Solar PV given that your pump is primarily running during the sunshine hours. My plan is to run a batteryless Hybrid / Off-Grid system to power the pool pump - the Solar PV Panels will power the Inverter directly and if insufficient power is being generated, then grid power will be used instead. We would plan to look later at a battery bank.

So to get 2kw of power, realistically, what size of panel array would I need - 10 x 300w ? Or more ? Or less ?

I was looking at ATERSA.SHOP website but they appear somewhat expensive (at least for the panels). Any other suggestions for another online supplier (or one in Almeria area)

10 panels seems alot of money to pay out just to run the pool pump, is it "worth it" - whats the payback time on the investment ? Is everyone "up for it" / contributing ?

My 260w panel was 160€. actually sent from spain, bought via ebay i think ?
