Irrigation System Conversion Grants

Grants are available to Delaware Electric Cooperative members for conversion of their irrigation pumps from diesel to electric. The grant provides 30% of the total non-utility cost of the conversion.

Costs covered include parts and labor associated with electric motor and starter installation, removal of existing gear head and components, and electrician costs. This Cooperative program is funded through the State of Delaware’s Energy Efficiency Investment Fund.

Eligibility and Qualifications: Systems that have a minimum of 40kW load are eligible for program funding. As a condition for non-utility grant qualification, recipients must first be approved by DEC and meet the requirements of the DEC Irrigation System Grant Program.
