Program Overview

This program provides incentives for engine replacement (repower) of engines/motors used to power agricultural irrigation pumps.  Funds are provided on a first come, first serve basis and applicants must obtain approval and have a signed, executed contract from the SJVAPCD prior to purchase of new replacement engine/motor.  Any replacement engine/motor purchased prior to contract execution is ineligible as this is not a rebate program.
