Keywords:Solar-Powered Irrigation System, Photovoltaic Generation, Centrifugal Motor Pump.
Solar energy is one of the most perfect sustainable energy we could have. With its many significant uses such as for industrial, commercial, agriculture and etc., this could be beneficial for everyone in pursuing sustainable economic development. The province of Nueva Ecija has been the largest-producing rice crop in the country for decades naming it the “Rice Granary of the Philippines”. Not only that, but there are also lands that produce high-value crops such as onion, mango, banana, calamansi, garlic, and different types of vegetables. With this agricultural effort done by the province, this would undoubtedly be needing a modern irrigation system. The study investigates and analyzed the performance of the Solar-Powered Irrigation System (SPIS) project in Nueva Ecija by opinion survey method. For the survey, a sample size of 30 is taken through a stratified random sampling method from the province that would compose of technical persons from the National Irrigation Authority (NIA), farmers, and households. The analysis has been done with percentages, averages, weighted scores, and ranking methods.
