Frequently Asked Questions

What is the AgriPump Rebate Program?

The AgriPump Rebate Program is an instant rebate program for constant pressure pump kits to promote the use of high-efficiency pumping systems in the agricultural sector in Ontario, Canada within Hydro One and Niagara Peninsula Energy Inc (NPEI)’s service territories. This program is designed to help Hydro One and NPEI’s agricultural customers easily manage their electricity consumption.

How do I participate?

Farmers: If you are a Hydro One or NPEI customer, you can participate in the program by purchasing a qualified constant pressure pump kit from a participating pump equipment contractor or dealer.

Who can I contact to learn more about the AgriPump Rebate Program?

How is the program funded?

The AgriPump Rebate Program is funded by the IESO’s Save on Energy programs and offered through your local hydro companies: Hydro One and Niagara Peninsula Energy Inc. (NPEI).

How do I submit a rebate?

This is an instant rebate program, therefore the rebate is received by the customer at the point-of-purchase and time-of-purchase for eligible constant pressure pump kits. Be sure to ask your contractor/dealer about the rebate before you purchase the equipment, and then look for the deduction on your invoice. The rebate is only available for qualified constant pressure pump kits that are going to be installed in farms or other agricultural facilities located in the service territories of Hydro One and NPEI.

What type of agricultural facilities are eligible?

The constant pressure pump kits must be installed on an agricultural facility operating in either Hydro One or NPEI service territories. All agricultural sub-sectors are eligible, including: Oilseed, Grain and Soybean Farming; Vineyards; Beef Cattle Operations; Dairy Cattle and Milk Production; Fruit & Vegetable Farming; Greenhouses, Nursery and Floriculture Production; Poultry and Egg Production; Horse Farming; and Hog & Pig Farming. Residential farms with a Farm Business Registration Number are also eligible.

What is a constant pressure pump kit?

Constant pressure pump kits are pumpsets that include a packaged variable frequency drive (VFD), integrated controlling logic and a pressure sensor. Constant pressure pump kits automatically optimize pump performance through a built-in pressure sensor that sends a signal to the on-board logic controller, which in turn controls the VFD. A drop in pressure caused by discharge valve(s) being opened will cause the controller to speed up the pump impeller; and conversely, an increase in pressure will slow it down. The control logic is based on modulating the flow of the pump system to deliver water at constant pressure. In agricultural applications, base-case pumps are standard pump systems that use throttling valves, pressure-release valves, and in some cases, no valves at all to control flow; all three methods are less efficient than using a VFD. Constant pressure pump kits benefit farmers by both managing their electricity bills and by ensuring constant pressure to all uses supplied by each pump; i.e. users will not experience a drop in pressure in case of high-usage events, as they would with a regular control approach.

What types of pumps are eligible for an instant rebate?

The AgriPump Rebate Program provides incentives for constant pressure pump kits between 0.5 hp and 10 hp and comprise: qualified motor + qualified pump + qualified variable frequency drive. The following pump types are eligible for specific rebate amounts, depending on horse power rating. Please see this section for more information.

How much electricity can I expect to reduce when I install the pump kit?

When you install the constant pressure pump kit you can expect to manage your electricity with energy savings up to 40%**.

**The 40% savings was developed using generic pump performance curves, 3,000 operating hours per year and an annual water usage profile that is typical to the agricultural sector. Actual energy savings may vary.

Do I have to replace my existing pump or can I just retrofit my existing pump?

In order to participate in the AgriPump Rebate Program you will need to purchase a new high-efficiency pump that meets program requirements and cannot retrofit an existing pump in order to get the rebate.

What types of pumps are eligible?

There are three types of pumps eligible for the rebate (10.0 horse power or less):

1. Submersible

Submersible pumps are typically used to deliver water from wells, as the motors are sealed, can be submersed, and are placed at the bottom of the borehole. The pump and motor are often packaged together as one piece. These pumps are cylindrical, with the pump and motor often packaged together as one piece.
 

2. End Suction

End suction pumps are the most basic type of above-grade pump, with water entering at the top and exiting from the side. They will boost the water from one tank to another, or from a tank to a field. They have a wide range of agricultural uses.
 

3. Vertical multi-stage

Vertical multi-stage pumps are another type of above-grade pump, with similar functions as end suction pumps. However, because of how they are built with multiple small impellers stacked up in a cylinder, they take less floor space and can be placed in-line in a pipe (i.e. water enters on the side, and exits on the opposite side, making a 90-degree angle).
