Solar water features lets you have the advantage of having a functional water feature sans the annoying wires. You can also place these features anywhere in your garden as long as it will get ample amount of sun exposure.
You can choose between a direct daylight solar power, which takes energy directly from daylight thereby limiting its usage to daytime only and a more advanced variant which recharges itself during daytime and the stored power can be used whenever it is required, like during cloudy days or at night time. On the other hand, solar pumps for ponds has become an alternative to electric powered ones.

With conventional water features and pumps, those spectacular sprays and fountains equates to high electricity consumption and therefore high utility bills. But with solar water features and solar pumps for ponds, that cost is drastically cut as you just basically pay for the equipment only, and repairs if needed. The utility costs are kept to bare minimum or nothing at all as the source of energy would be the sun.
Solar power has an infinite way to go and an alternative to very expensive conventionally run equipment. You just have to make your choice.
