The major objective of the research performed under this WAPA Conservation and Renewable Energy contract is to determine if electric rate structures can be used to provide incentives to irrigators to make more efficient and or reduced use of electric power. A companion objective is to examine possibilities for electric rate structures to provide incentive for irrigators to use more electric energy for pumping irrigation water.
