The Disadvantages of Solar Powered Irrigation:

  1. High initial costs for material and installation and long ROI
  2. Needs lots of space as efficiency is not 100% yet
  3. No solar power at night so there is a need for a large battery bank
  4. Some people think they are ugly (I am definitely not one of those!)
  5. Devices that run on DC power directly are more expensive
  6. Depending on geographical location the size of the solar panels vary for the same power generation
  7. Cloudy days do not produce much energy
  8. Solar panels are not being massed produced due to lack of material and technology to lower the cost enough to be more affordable
  9. Solar powered cars do not have the same speeds and power as typical gas powered cars
  10. Lower production in the winter months
