"Solar doesn't work at night when most irrigation takes place"

I've been faffing around with various bits of solar tech enough to know that solar stirlings work pretty bloody well to fill header tanks during the day - and the "hot as balls" part is good when you have a steady supply of cooling water to keep the cold side colder and raise thermal efficiency.

Not all energy schemes need high technology and complex electronic devices.
