Learn how to improve the energy efficiency of your pressurised irrigation system in Agriculture Victoria’s next energy webinar. Irrigation assessments are one-way farmers can use to identify ways to save energy, costs and stress.

Lifetime pumping costs can be more than five times the capital cost of a pumping system, so designing and maintaining an efficient irrigation system is vital to minimising costs.

A recent Agriculture Victoria irrigation system assessment identified simple modifications improved energy efficiency by 20 per cent, resulting in cost savings of $2,600 per season or more than $40,000 over the life of the system.

During the webinar Agriculture Victoria’s Nick O’Halloran and an irrigator who has implemented changes to their system will share:

  • How to measure the energy efficiency of pumped irrigation systems.
  • Common causes of poor energy efficiency.
  • Tools available to identify improvement opportunities and quantify dollar savings.
  • Farmer case studies to demonstrate the types of solutions and potential cost savings possible.
