Agricultural Irrigation DR Estimation Tool

The Agricultural Irrigation Demand Response Estimation Tool developed by the DRRC accurately estimates agricultural loads based on weather and availability of surface water. From this, it is possible to determine how much of that load can be shed or shifted as a demand response resource. Two tools are in development: a tool for PG&E personnel to use for evaluating AutoDR technical incentive applications, and a public tool for growers and aggregators to estimate the level of incentives they may be eligible for so that they can decide between available options.
