What is a High Efficiency Agricultural Pump (AgriPump)?
The AgriPump Rebate Program offers instant rebates* for high efficiency pumpsets (0.5 – 10 hp) with advanced control technology that automatically adjusts performance to meet your needs. Rebates are “instant” because they are offered by participating equipment suppliers at the time-of-purchase for eligible pump kits. It is fast, and easy!

**The 40% savings was developed using generic pump performance curves, 3000 operating hours per year and an annual water usage profile that is typical to the agricultural sector. Actual energy savings may vary.
***Simple payback periods were estimated based on equipment cost data provided by a pump manufacturer, Hydro One R2 electricity rates, and the basis of a new standard pump kit.
