SunRay Solar Powered Pool Pumps

The SunRay line of Solar Products are all designed to be off the grid systems for effectively moving water using solar power. Our engineering and manufacturing experience allows us to use the latest solar technology to create systems for today's consumer needs.

SOLAR APPLICATIONS

SunRay Engineering manufactures systems to utilize solar electric power to pump water. It is cost-effective for swimming pools, especially where utility rates (or daytime peak rates) are very high. A pool pump is often one of the largest electrical loads in a home.

A solar pump is practical because the need for filtration is greatest during sunny weather. It is perfect for pumping through solar heat collectors because the circulation requirement corresponds with solar intensity. SunRay pumps are built with efficiency in mind. They use significantly less power than traditional AC pool pumps to produce the same pressure and flow. There is a built-in standard basket strainer.

The SunRay Solar Powered Pool Pump Concept

The conventional residential swimming pool pump uses electricity from the grid. On average, in the US, the cost of that electricity is about $60 to $90 per month for a residential pool. If that pump can be replaced with one that doesn't require electricity from the grid, the pool owner can use that savings to pay for the cost of the replacement.

Using a simple calculation sheet, amperage taken from the data plate on the existing pump, the hours the pump is operated each day and the cost of electricity, we can calculate with great accuracy the actual monthly cost to operate a pool pump.

The data plate on an existing pump so you can calculate your savings using solar power

Calculate your savings using solar power:

  1. Pool pump motor volts x motor amps =watts
  2. Divide by 1000 = (KWH)
  3. Multiply this by hours a day (run time)
  4. Multiply by number of days in billing cycle = Number of KWH saved per month
  5. Multiply by cost of KWH = monthly savings
  6. Multiply the monthly savings by 12 = Annual Savings

Example for a 1.5HP A/C pump

  1. 230 volts x 9.3 = 2139 watts
  2. 2139 / 1000 = 2.139 KWH
  3. 2.139 x 10 hours = 21.39
  4. 21.39 x 30 days = 641.7 KWH/month
  5. 641.7 x .129 cents per KWH = $82.78
  6. $82.78 X 12 months = $993.35

The savings on electricity will vary depending upon the pool pump model and size as well as how long you run your pool pump per day.
