Farmers, Rural Residential Customers and Municipalities
If you are a Hydro One or Niagara Peninsula Energy Inc. (NPEI) customer, you can participate in the program by purchasing eligible equipment from a participating pump equipment contractor or dealer. Please visit the the How to Participate page to find a contractor near you.

When you work with a participating contractor to upgrade your pump, the rebate is provided at the point of purchase. The predefined rebate amounts depend on the type and size of the pump purchased. Customers purchasing eligible equipment will be expected to provide their address and Hydro One or NPEI account number at the time of purchase.

The AgriPump Rebate Program is funded by the Independent Electricity System Operator’s Save on Energy programs and offered through your local hydro companies: Hydro One and Niagara Peninsula Energy Inc. The AgriPump Rebate Program is subject to change without notice.

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 equiment. Be sure to ask your contractor or dealer about the rebate before you purchase the equipment, and look for the deduction on your invoice. The rebate is only available for qualified pump and VFD equipment that are going to be installed in the service territories of Hydro One and NPEI.

The AgriPump Rebate Program offers instant rebates for pumps sold as packaged systems with VFDs and for VFDs sold and installed on existing pumps. The following pump types are eligible for specific rebate amounts, depending on the horsepower rating (see the table on the right):

  • Submersible pump
  • End-suction pump
  • Vertical multi-stage pump
  • Circulator pump
  • Milk Vacuum
  • Milk Transfer

 

When you install the constant pressure pump kit, you can expect to reduce your system’s electricity consumption by up to 40%.**

**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.

The AgriPump Rebate Program offers rebates for VFDs sold and installed on existing pumps if the project meets the following criteria:

  • A VFD is not currently installed on the pump.
  • The VFD is listed on the eligible products list.
  • The contractor provides details of the make and model of the existing pump.
  • The existing pumpset is a submersible, end-suction or vertical multi-stage pump between 0.5 and 10 hp; or dairy milk vacuum pump or transfer pump.
  • The VFD is compatible with the existing pump.
