Abstract: Energy may be a key ingredient for the development of a nation. India is a country that is profusely endued with renewable energy sources. It is an outsized nation and the rate of electrification have not unsubdued speed with the increasing people, development and industrialisation has resulted in the increasing shortage between need and supply of electricity. Individuals who are not provided the facility grid need to be dependent on fossil fuels like diesel and petrol for his or her power wants and additionally incur significant revenant expenditure. We have taken initiative to design and implement a pump which will be operated on multiple energy sources. The pump is operated by taking power from the prevailing AC grid and facility taken from the standalone electrical photovoltaic system. The pump works on renewable solar power and whenever there is a shortage of solar power, it is switched to AC grid. Additionally, to the system, a self-display unit has been put in within the pump. This unit helps the buyer to observe the motor parameters like voltage, current and frequency any time. This unit helps in reducing the value for putting in a separate meter close to the starter of the pump. This increases the compactness of the pump.
