Old windmill stands by as solar pulls in power from the sun...

The times are changing. 
 
Below left, the water pump relies entirely on solar.
 
 Here's the info from Wikipedia:

"A solar-powered pump is a pump running on electricity generated by photovoltaic  panels or the thermal energy available from collected sunlight as opposed to grid electricity or diesel run water pumps.

The operation of solar powered pumps is more economical mainly due to the lower operation and maintenance costs and has less environmental impact than pumps powered by an internal commpustion engine.

 Solar pumps are useful where grid electricity is unavailable and alternative sources (in particular wind) do not provide sufficient energy."  (Quote from Wikipedia)  Click here for more info  Solar Wells - Wikipedia.  Photos from Wikipedia page noted.
