The SunPump System 2000™ is truly unique
in that it can be used on any type of above ground storage tank in any
location in the world. Each SunPump System is carefully constructed to
meet the specific needs of the petroleum industry for fuel delivery.
This typical remote site set-up is the basic system, which can be
installed with minimal set-up.
As simple as 1, 2, 3. Once your tank is located, just install
system components, face the System components in the direction of maximum
sunlight, and energize the system. Now you're ready to Pump!
Consider the advantages that the SPS2000 has over standard hard-wired
Photovoltaic modules have no moving parts, and degradation is minimal.
Many solar panel systems have been operating in harsh environments for 15
years or more with no measurable decrease in output power.
Any energy system requires maintenance. Experience shows that maintaining
a SPS2000 application is less expensive than most alternatives. Virtually
The SunPump System 2000™ is designed for easy expansion. If pumping demand
might change in future years, the ease and cost of altering the system is
Proven reliability includes operation in severe weather conditions
including snow and ice for unattended long periods of time. Thousands of
solar powered applications have been operating reliably for many years. It
is no wonder that solar powered applications are now the standard for many
The SPS2000 requires no excavation, trenching or dedicated electrical
service. Minimal preparation and set-up time is needed.
Uniquely designed, the SPS2000 offers 100% true portability and can be set
up virtually anywhere and a 100% return on the installation costs is
realized if site needs change.
Day or Night, Winter or
Summer: A solar panel exposed to the sun will convert roughly 12% of
the energy it sees into DC (direct current) electricity. With solar energy
as the power source, batteries then become the reservoir for this energy.
From this receiver the SPS2000 will operate 12 volt pumps, lights, fuel
management systems, interstitial leak alarms, overfill alarms and many
other options. Since the system operates from the storage batteries, the
SPS2000 application can be used day or night. The typical SPS2000
application can pump thousands of gallons of product over a long period
without even seeing the sun. Solar powered units are so reliable and
advanced that charging occurs even on overcast and cloudy days,
Operational Costs: None
Tax Credits: The U.S. Government
along with many States offer Solar Energy Equipment credits.
