CAN (ON): Agricultural water pump rebate program launched

Hydro One and Niagara Peninsula Energy announced the AgriPump Rebate Program, the first program of its kind in Ontario to offer instant rebates to customers who purchase a high-efficiency pump kit. The program is ideal for all farming applications, including livestock, greenhouse and vineyards. Upgrading to a high-efficiency pump will improve performance and could save customers up to 40 per cent of their system’s energy costs.



“This energy conservation program is focused on helping our agricultural customers manage their electricity and water usage all while saving money,” said Cindy-Lynn Steele, Vice President, Market Solutions, Hydro One. “As Ontario’s largest electricity provider to farming customers, we are committed to offering a variety of energy solutions to help them save on electricity and invest in programs that will meet their important needs while delivering a positive return to their bottom line.”

“This collaborative approach with IESO and Hydro One allowed us to be very innovative with this new program,” says Niagara Peninsula Energy Inc. CEO and President Brian Wilkie. “We’re happy to be able to cater to the agricultural sector and provide this instant rebate program on high efficiency pump sets with advanced control technology.”

“Water conservation and high energy costs are a big concern for farmers in the Niagara region and across the province,” said Drew Spoelstra, Director for Halton, Hamilton-Wentworth, Niagara North and Niagara South, Ontario Federation of Agriculture. “The Save on Energy Conservation Program and this type of cross-utility initiative to launch the AgriPump Rebate Program is great for agriculture.”

To be eligible for a rebate under the program, each kit must be between 0.5 hp and 10 hp and must comprise of a pump, motor, variable frequency drive and accessories. Customers can receive up to $610 per constant pressure pump kit. The pumps are quick and easy to install and guard against wear and tear.

The AgriPump Rebate Program is only available to agriculture customers in Hydro One and Niagara Peninsula Energy Inc. (NPEI) service territories. The instant rebate is fulfilled at the point of purchase.
