What kind of amperage is it producing? Converting back and forth between AC and DC is very inefficient...A DC generator would be better...it's still a good idea as part of a hybrid system with solar, because any electromechanical device will need down time for maintenance and repair...whereas solar has no moving parts...

I think the advantage to the AC feed is the long run available (up to 200')with inexpensive "extension cord" to the rectifier. Efficiency is secondary to me as the water will always (hopefully) be running
