For those HCREC members on the Rate 8 Irrigation Control, the control time will begin at 3:30 p.m. versus 4:30 p.m. as in the past. This is due to the shift in peak usage trending earlier in the day. Northwest Iowa Power Cooperative (NIPCO), our power provider has moved up the controlling time on irrigation motors from 4:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The 4-hour window is still in place, as 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Once again, this is due to the shift in demand use trending to earlier in the day. We just want to make you aware of this if you are checking on irrigation that could be controlled at this time.
Also, we have now completed installation of all irrigation meters to the new AMI meters that send meter readings back to the office through radio frequency. This means no more meter readers driving through the fields to read irrigation meters.
