Research on solar pumping and irrigation

The Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy engaged the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) to research the potential for solar systems to replace, or be used as a complementary system for, diesel-powered irrigation and water pumping.

USQ's research can help you decide whether or not solar irrigation is for you. The 3 reports:

  • identify and discuss the technology of solar power and solar pumping systems
  • outline incentive and funding opportunities for solar pumping systems
  • review Queensland agribusinesses’ irrigation systems and efficiencies.
