Irrigation Service Rate

Availability: Available to members for pump irrigation and municipal pumping service, within the Cooperative's service area, according to the Cooperative's rules and regulations.

Load Management Program: In an effort to reduce power costs, the Cooperative offers reduced horsepower and energy charges to irrigation customers electing to participate in load management for which participants agree to allow total control of their irrigation load during peaking periods. The Cooperative agrees to exercise load control with as little inconvenience to the customer as possible and only when necessary to achieve predetermined cost savings.

Types of Service: Three phase, 60 cycles, at the Cooperative's standard secondary voltages. At the discretion of the Cooperative, single-phase service may be furnished at locations where three-phase service is not available provided the motor capacity is not in excess of 10 horsepower.
