Irrigation System Conversions

Up to 50 percent of installed cost, based on $0.25/kilowatt hour annual savings

Converting to a drip irrigation or linear/pivot system can help you save both water and energy by applying water to field crops more efficiently and reducing the amount of evaporation. Energy Trust offers cash incentives to help you make these improvements.

  1. Establish your eligibility.

    Energy Trust provides cash incentives to Oregon businesses for energy-efficiency and renewable energy projects. To qualify, you must:

    • Be served by Portland General Electric, Pacific Power, NW Natural, Cascade Natural Gas or Avista and contribute to the public purpose charge. Check your utility bill or contact us if you have questions.
    • Have a project site in Oregon.
  2. Talk with your trade ally or vendor to help you select equipment that qualifies for Energy Trust incentives.

    We can help you get started.

  3. Within 5 business days you will receive a form from Energy Trust that includes the incentive offer for your equipment purchase.

    Review this, provide your utility account number, signed W-9, mailing address, site address and estimated project completion date, and sign and return it to the Energy Trust contact listed on the form.

  4. We will review and send you the approved incentive offer.

    Then you can order equipment from your vendor and install it at your facility.

  5. After your project has been installed, you’ll receive a Project Completion Form from Energy Trust.

    Return that with your invoice(s) for the equipment purchase. You’ll receive your Energy Trust incentive check within 4-6 weeks.

An Energy Trust trade ally contractor can help apply for incentives for:

  • Drip irrigation system conversion—up to 40 percent energy savings
  • Linear/pivot system conversion—up to 50 percent energy savings

Incentives are subject to funding availability and may change.
