Abstract: Energy in general and electrical energy in particular is not only at the center of sustainable development, but also at the center of development itself. Thus Energy is critical for sustainable development because it is not only necessary for economic development, but also because this necessity drives societies towards environmentally unsound energy use and could severely compromise the planet itself. With steep increase in the supply – demand gap of energy, the shortage of energy has become global problem. With seemingly poor trend of capacity increase, the burden of importing energy is increasing particularly for India in the south Asian countries. Now it has become essential to opt for alternative sources of energy. Use of solar energy in all the sectors is one of the feasible options. Electric pumps can be conveniently replaced by solar PV pumps. The initiative needs very less investment and will power. In this paper, an effort has been made to show the effectiveness of PV solar pump in place of a conventional electric pump in industry.
