First Net Zero Solar Pump House: Drinking Water Supply In 5 Km Radius With Zero Electricity Bill

Location: Jalpaiguri
Capacity: 33 Kwp
Department: NBDD
Purpose: Drinking Water Purpose

Overview – 2 x 12.5 HP Solar Water Pump & 8 KWp Solar Power Plant

This 2 x 12.5 HP Solar Water Pump and 8 KWp Solar Power Plant in Jalpaiguri has saved the lives of many by providing clean and drinkable water for consumption. This pump has been set up to supply water in tribal villages in the area. The solar pump needs no special concept for running it. The pump set has also led to no bill payment to DISCOM. In these areas finding proper water to drink would have otherwise been a tough task, the solar water pump with the help of solar energy has made the task easier than ever thought.


Technical Details

The pump and the solar rooftop power plant have a high elevated structure. The solar pump set has a grid-connected inverter, Solar Panels. It comes with a pump controller, Array Junction Box (for DC side protection), a distribution Box (for AC side protection), LA, earthing, cables. The separate AC -DC multilayer protection is an added feature provided by SunShell Power in their water pumping systems which is mostly not found in many solar water pumps in India.



The solar pump comes with an IP 54 enclosure due to which, opening the pump controlling box is not a requirement for the same. It has a solar remote monitoring system that is highly proficient and user-friendly. These are added features of products developed by SunShell. The reduction of pollution and environment-friendly nature makes it one of the best options to be availed.



The SunShell Power is such a solar company in India that uses load-changing switches. This is not a very common feature in other solar companies in India or in Bengal. This does not allow AC and DC transmission at the same time. Consequently, it protects the pump controller and solar panel from getting burnt.

7.5 HP Solar Water Pumping System With Dual Axis Tracker & Sprinkler
SunShell powers integrated the 7.5 HP solar water pumping system in the Chitmahal area in the Coochbihar district. This system aims to lift water from the nearby river and distribute it to the 8 hectares of land through sprinklers. This project was a first of its kind and was closely monitored by the Chief Minister’s office. The whole structure used 24 numbers of 72 Cells 325Wp Poly-Crystalline Solar Panels with a dual-axis tracker, operated manually by a single person. The dual-axis tracker helps track the sun’s changing positions due to the earth’s rotation and revolution movements and, in turn, helps capture the maximum amount of sun’s energy to be used for the system. One axis is azimuth, which allows the solar panel to move left and right. The other axis is elevation and allows the panel to turn up and down.

6.6 KWp On-Grid Domestic Rooftop Solar PV Power Plant: First Domestic project under CESC
Dr. Rajen Kumar Pandey, a renowned doctor and renewable energy enthusiast were the first to introduce a domestic net metering system for his residential solar rooftop power plant under CESC. Net metering is a billing mechanism that credits solar energy system owners for the electricity they add to the grid. If a home is net-metered, the electricity meter will run backward to provide a credit against what electricity is consumed at night or other periods when the home's electricity use exceeds the system's output.
