Your solution is an excellent one, provided the upper pond fills by itself,
either through springs or a stream or even rain water.  But if you have to
generate the power to fill the upper pond, which would be the case, for

You need an extra 2KW of solar that gets 4 hr of sun to refill the top
pond.

No, I'll use my excess windpower.  That makes it free.
