Agricultural Sector Opportunities

Addresses efficiencies in growing crops as well as raising domestic livestock

  • Irrigation-Related Measures

    • Irrigation System Upgrades – requires application form and itemized invoice

  • Variable feed drives for Existing Turbine Pumps

    • Variable Feed Drives (VFD), also called Variable Speed Drives (VSD) provide more efficiencies for pumping systems that have equal or greater flow variation of 10% or 20% head requirement. Due to the potential for harmonic distortion, which creates power quality issues and can damage equipment, all installations must pass a quality check and be approved by our Engineering Department. To apply, please contact Vic Hubbard in our Energy Services Department at 509-542-5904 or e-mail vhubbard@franklinpud.com
