Yeah, I said it. I stole it from a friend who was helping us with this back in June. I have mentioned we were working on a cool project… and finally, I’m done with the video! One day, as I stood scraping some wind blown dust out of the racks the solar panels sit on, my friend said this… and I laughed and told him I was going to steal that phrase! So here we are.
The Mesa Pasture is familiar to you… and one of the very first videos I made back in 2010 was about the 70 year old ram pump we used to bring water out of Otter Creek Canyon. We had switched to a propane generator for the past years. Now we had the opportunity for a collaborative work with Sun Drive Tech. A small solar array would power the pump, filling water tanks and water storage units across the pasture.
It varies throughout the day, pumping 1-7 gallons per minute depending on the position of the sun and the weather.
Enjoy the video.
