Abstract
This paper presents an economic assessment of large power (hundreds kWp) PV irrigation systems in the ECOWAS region, considering only the investment needed for substituting diesel-powered and grid-powered systems with PV ones. Seven countries and two irrigation operating modes were compared: pumping to a water tank or at constant pressure. Economic indicators are very encouraging: NPC values are in the 0.33-41.5x105 $ range, IRR values are in the 8-47% range and PBP values are in the 2.1-10 years range. LCOE for PV irrigation systems are in the 4.5-17.4 $cents/kWh range, which represent percentage savings of 30-84% if compared to diesel-powered and grid-powered systems.
