Above or below ground water storage. A large part of living sustainably is not only about electricity and where it comes from but managing resources on every level. It becomes increasingly important to have systems in place that not only provide stability for life, but energy efficiency. Water pumps can use a lot of power – and while solar power and battery back-up can easily provide that power, there are ways to increase the efficiency of those systems exponentially without a lot of technical know-how. Where do we get our water? How efficient is the well pump in the system, and how long does it have to run for? In many ways, having a large extra water source is very similar to having a battery back-up. If water exists on demand, then the water pumps used do not have to work so hard or as long, don’t have to pump when there is limited sunshine. Let’s face it, water is LIFE. With the use of a water storage system, large pumps that need to be installed can be slower thus using substantially less electricity, which means a smaller solar electric system or battery back-up. Or EVEN BETTER – we can use pumps that run with sunshine alone – without the use of battery back-up all together. Solar BiZ has been using a (sunshine only) PV Direct pumping system for over 20 years without issue. The pump runs when the sun is shining or until the water storage tank is full. This not only saves resources and provides a huge amount of security, THIS SAVES MONEY! Norwesco is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of polyethylene tanks, made from resins that meet FDA specifications for safe potable drinking water. These tanks last forever. They are impact resistant, one piece, and seamless to ensure premium quality, reliability, and performance. The black or green color limits light penetration, which reduces the growth of waterborne algae. For over 38 years, our customers have relied on Norwesco Tanks.
