Rajnus Seed, Klamath Falls
Estimated annual savings: $11,000
The 800-acre Rajnus Seed family farm in Klamath Falls has worked with Energy Trust on several energy-saving upgrades which are helping them to reduce labor hours and save money. Most recently the farm installed two new irrigation pumps with variable frequency drives, VFDs.
The new 125 horsepower and 100 horsepower pumps with VFDs are “saving a bunch, energy wise” says owner George Rajnus – an estimated $4,400 in annual energy costs. For the project the farm received about $15,000 in cash incentives from Energy Trust, or approximately 43 percent of the project cost. Rajnus plans to continue working with Energy Trust to uncover additional opportunities to reduce energy use.
