I've seen small windmills for this but it's not what I'd consider inexpensive.

I think a windmill sounds like a great idea or something solar

I guess that depends on the surface area of the pond....

Snort - a few years ago at our old place (don't have a pond yet here) I took a submersible electric pump (like the kind for the backyard koi ponds) and had about an 18" piece of PVC connected to the outlet.  I took a 5 gallon bucket, filled the bottom third or so with expanding spray foam, and put the PVC thru the bottom of the bucket (pump is inside the bucket) and then let it float in my pond upside down, PVC pointing up.  I put a straight nozzle (garden sprayer) on the PVC & adjusted it so I had a fan of relatively big droplets.  Tied a chunk of cinder block to the bail of the bucket to keep it from blowing to the edge of the pond.  It worked pretty well.   The pump hung low enough that it didn't suck in any of the floating algae.  I put it on a timer so it didn't run all the time.  I was using it for algae control in the summer - never tried to run it in the winter if that's what you're looking for.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
