Abstract
The utilization of solar energy to generate the off-grid electric power is a prominent technology which is utilized in photovoltaic based water pumping system for agriculture and community water supply in this stud. It helps to improve the agricultural productivity which improves the living standard of a farmer and also reduces the CO2 emissions by replacing fossil fuels. This technology replaces 100% fossil fuel system and save CO2 by 14977.57 kg/year. This paper presents fuel replacement and reduction of carbon dioxide on an annual basis and economic analysis of photovoltaic based water pumping system.
