Solar City SunSmart solar-powered pool pump

Wednesday, 12 February, 2014



SunSmart solar-powered pumps give consumers an ‘off the grid’ opportunity that is claimed to save more in energy costs than a 4 kW solar energy system. The SunSmart solar-powered pool pump system achieves this by utilising high-efficiency, brushless, DC motor technology.

Brushless DC (direct current) motors are claimed to be almost twice as efficient as AC (alternating current) motors, so the job of filtering with DC power can be achieved with a much smaller motor, meaning fewer panels and lower cost. SunSmart solar-powered pumps can also be set up with the optional power transformer in lieu of solar panels. The pump will run at full speed consuming only around 500 W of power.

The pumps are available in various models to cater for all pool sizes. Next-generation SunSmart solar-powered pumps for domestic and community swimming pools in the higher 72 V capacity are also available.
