California Agricultural Demand Response
- Nov 11, 2021 4:09 pm GMT
California has issues with climate change that cause frequent droughts. Although we also have a very well-developed water resources system with many reservoirs and aqueducts, it is currently being stretched to the limit by these droughts.
When our water resources system cannot supply the water that farmers need, they tap their groundwater, and this too is becoming overextended.
As with many problems, this one described above also comes with an opportunity. This one is for the electric grid. Groundwater pumping has a strong potential for demand response. By creating incentives for farmers that implement demand response, the state will help them offset some of the expenses that will result from implementing better groundwater management practices.
This paper has four subjects: (1) current California agricultural production, (2) agricultural demand response systems, (3) water management techniques, and (4) some systems that will implement the second and third subjects.
