Cost of solar and diesel pumps:

A cost comparison was conducted for solar and diesel water pumps over a range of pumping heads (10 to 200m) and a range of daily flow rates (3 to 50m3/day). The all-inclusive costs were calculated taking into account. The initial upfront cost, the operating costs (diesel fuel for the operating life), maintenance costs, and replacement costs (diesel engine, solar submersible pump unit etc).Calculating the all-inclusive cost is a fair way of comparing solar pumps (usually higher upfront cost) with a diesel pump (usually lower upfront cost, but with ongoing diesel and intensive maintenance costs). The all-inclusive cost takes a long term approach and is calculated over a twenty year period, which is also the minimum life expectancy of a solar panel. The cost comparisons show that diesel pumps are on average two to four times more expensive over a 20 year period than solar pumps for pumping the same average amount of water per day! Refer to costing approach in final report for more detailed information.
