Abstract:
A solar pumping is a pump running on electricity generated by solar photovoltaic panels available from collected sunlight as opposed to grid electricity or diesel run water pumps. However, the use is constrained by the spare parts are not available in market and high cost of the solar pumps components. The research study was conducted in Jodhpur district of Rajasthan. There are total sevens tehsils in Jodhpur district of Rajasthan, out of which, two tehsils namely Osian and Balesar were selected on the basis of maximum number of installed of solar pumps. Ten villages from each selected tehsils were selected on the basis of maximum number of solar pumps beneficiaries. One hundred twenty five (125) respondents were selected from twenty selected villages these were having maximum number of solar pumps selected for study. In the research investigated the constraints encountered by the respondents were categorized into six categories namely technical, operational & maintenance, financial, extension, farm level and environmental constraints. The study clearly showed that among all the studied constraints, technical constraints were up to greatest extent 69.76 MPS and ranked first followed by extension constraints 65.87 MPS ranked second however, the extent of financial constraints 60.10 MPS, operation and maintenance constraints 51.80 MPS, farm level constraints 40.67 MPS and environmental constraints 30.66 MPS were ranked third, fourth, fifth and six respectively.
