Farmers Get Over $5,000 to Save Water
Oregon Trail Electric Consumers Cooperative (OTECC) offers two programs for their agricultural customers. The first program, the Irrigation Sprinkler and Pump Motor Program, offers rebates to customers to install approved irrigation measures that save energy and water for hand line, wheel line or pivot irrigation watering systems. The amount of the rebate depends on the number of measures installed, the type of irrigation system and the size. Rebates are also offered for replacing a standard efficiency pump motor to a premium efficiency pump motor. Rebates range from $55 to $5,600, depending on the efficiency rating and the size of the motor. The second program, the Freeze Resistant Cattle Fountain Program, offers rebates for changing a conventional stock watering tank with electric heater to an electric-free stock watering tank. The rebate amount is $165 per fountain.
