With increasing energy costs, the operating cost is usually at least 75 percent of the total irrigation cost over the life of an irrigation pumping plant. Once you have a handle on the expected operating costs, you can compare the investment or fixed cost of the different options. system allows us to look at the total cost per acre of irrigation. The annual per acre costs for 11 different irrigation systems are displayed in Table 5. A full season of furrow or border irrigation totaling 12 inches of water has an estimated total cost of approximately $54/acre using a standard well. Using a straight edge, draw a line from the point indicating $/Mcf through the “pivot point” to the vertical line, “Total Cost” and read $/ HP-hr (note dashed line). For the HP engine, the total power cost for natural gas would be: $/HP-hr X . Construction and Operating Costs of Groundwater Pumps for Irrigation in the Riverine Plain D. W. Robinson Technical Report 20/02, January • Capital cost of pumps • Capital cost of power supply • Pump life expectancy • Pumping and operational costs.

The cost to pump irrigation water depends on the type of energy used to power the pumping unit. Electricity and diesel fuel are used to power irrigation for about 76% of the land irrigated in the region. Nebraska uses electricity or diesel fuel to.
