Irrigation Development Versus Hydroelectric Generation: Can Interruptible Irrigation Play A Role?
Irrigation, under conditions where water has a high opportunity cost, could be interruptible with water use, only occurring when water is plentiful. Pacific Northwest case studies indicate interruption can substantially lessen the opportunity cost of new irrigation developments, although not enough to justify the particular case projects examined. Interruptible operation of existing projects in the case study areas appears desirable.
