Pacific Power, through the FinAnswer® Express and Energy FinAnswer® programs, offers incentives for agricultural irrigation customers to help upgrade their system and receive cash incentives. The Energy FinAnswer program provides no-cost pump testing, irrigation system analysis and custom incentives of $0.12 per kilowatt-hour annual energy savings plus $50 per kilowatt average monthly demand savings.

In addition, eligible customers can receive cash incentives when replacing worn nozzles or upgrade to premium efficiency motors. The incentive amount is based on the equipment purchased and installed. For example, replace used standard or flow control brass nozzles installed on a hand line, solid set or wheel line system and receive $0.68 per nozzle, up to 100 percent of cost. More information, including eligibility and equipment requirements, can be found on the website. Interested customers should contact a Pacific Power energy representative at the number listed above before installing new equipment.
