Water is heavy, and with rising energy costs it is becoming more and more expensive to pump irrigation water. A Network Control solution can help you save energy by providing a real alternative to pressurized pipeline distribution systems, along with all the other benefits of Network Control.
With the Network Control solution, canal systems can perform with nearly the same responsiveness as pressurized piped distribution system, without the energy costs. If water is pumped into your canals instead of coming from storage, the operational spill reduction that Network Control achieves can substantially reduce energy costs. And high, consistent flows through turnouts reduce the need for pressurized irrigation on the farm, saving your customers energy too.
