Electric Irrigation

As energy costs continue to soar, farmers are looking for more cost-efficient options to fuel their farm operations. Georgia Power wants to help your business be more energy-efficient.

For many years, diesel was often the cheapest option to powering an irrigation system. However, with today's increasing diesel prices, farmers are looking for more ways to lower their expenses.

Georgia Power has worked with the United States Department of Agriculture to develop a federally funded grant program for farmers in Georgia. The program provides funding to farmers who convert from diesel to electric and install low-flow drop sprinkler heads on their irrigation systems.

According to the website FederalGrantsWire.com, more than 100 government-supported grant and loan programs exist for agriculture.
