Kasco® Solar Powered RA1 Diffused Aeration System

  • $8,246.00


The Kasco® Solar Panels allow their RA1 Diffused Aeration Systems to be powered by the sun instead of electrical power.  Controllers integrate a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) to convert DC power to AC power.  These Solar Powered Aeration Systems are a reliable and optimal option for ponds located too far off the grid power or to save on electrical costs. 

The Kasco® Solar RA Diffused Aeration Systems are available as Solar Power Only and Solar + Power Grid.

Solar Power Only Controller 

Solar-only systems use solar energy to maximize operation during daylight hours. In partial sunlight (morning and afternoon) the system will run at a reduced speed extending the daily run time. These packages include the PicoCell™.

Solar + Power Grid Blend Controller

These systems utilize solar power during the day and grid power at night to provide 24/7 performance.  These packages include the PicoBlender™ 2500 Control Panel.

PV Solar Panels

Minimun 325+ watt polycrystalline photovoltaic panels.  Dimensions 77" x 39" x 1.6".  Operating in Temperature Range from -40°F to 185°F

The Kasco® Robust-Aire™ RA1 Solar Aeration Systems are highly efficient, reliable, and durable aeration systems that induce oxygen transfer, beneficial water movement, and mixing to ponds up to 1.5 Acres, 8 to 50 feet deep. 

3-Year Warranty for Compressors, 1-Year Warranty for Controllers, 10-Year Warranty for Solar Panels. 

Installation is quick and easy. These  RA1 Solar Aeration Systems come complete with everything you need!
