Investigation of Solar Energy Use in Agricultural Irrigation

Ismail Becenen | Umut Kuzucu | Abdullah Bilekkaya

Abstract: The aim of in this article is to determine the advantages of systems that produce electrical energy from solar energy. The availability of solar energy for the electrical energy consumed in agricultural irrigation in the summer months in Edirne (Turkiye) was investigated. Photovoltaic system installation costs and payback periods have been calculated and it has been determined whether the installation of the system is economical or not. When the electrical energy used in the irrigation of agricultural areas in Edirne is met from the alternative energy system, the panel power required for the establishment of this system as 149.945, 250 kW and the amount of energy to be obtained from the system is calculated as 404.722.988, 00 kWh. Consequently; the payback period of the set up is calculated as 7 years. When it is accepted that the life of the solar system to be established is 25 years, it has been seen that it is economically possible to make agricultural irrigation with the electrical energy obtained from the solar systems to be established by using the state support for Edirne.
