agricultural economics, irrigation, load management
Irrigator incomes are highly sensitive to yield losses from load management irrigation system power interruptions. Should irrigators therefore avoid load management control programs? Under the conditions examined in this case study the answer is probably "yes" if irrigators are unable to opt out of the load control program during the irrigation season. If discretion to opt out is permitted however the answer is clearly the opposite "no."
