NRCS Information

★★★★★  13 Reviews

For customers looking to work with NRCS to recoup some of the costs of a solar well pump installation, we are here to help. While we can't guarantee NRCS approval, we have designed our kits to adhere to every documented requirement in every US state. The program still requires you to buy and install the system - you just want to be sure you are doing it to your state's specifications to get them to reimburse the costs. All states are a little different, but generally customers go at it in one of a few ways.

  A. Follow Best Practices in Selecting and Installing (recommended) 
B. Try to Fund a Previously Installed System (in a pinch)
What you Need to Buy 1) NRCS-Ready Upgrade Kit with any RPS System

2) "Time Is Money" Turnkey Kit (optional) **
1) NRCS Post Hoc Upgrade Kit 
What you Need to Fill Out Request for NRCS
Request for NRCS

A. Follow Best Practices in Selecting and Installing (recommended) 
Use "NRCS Upgrade Kit" with any RPS System. Use "Turnkey Kit" (optional) to ensure approved poly pipe, wire, well seal and solar panel mounting.
1) Size your solar water pump system with an RPS Specialist and mention that you're thinking about NRCS funding when buying - ideally with "NRCS Upgrade Kit" and "Turnkey Kit".
2. F
ill out the Request for NRCS Documentation form with details on your well, water use, location and your contact info. RPS will email the printable pdf and you can can show the NRCS field office in your area if and when they request it. 
3) Prior to install - bring specs, documents to local NRCS field office for preliminary approval and scheduling of site visit. (optional in some states)
4) Install using all the proper parts, pipe, wire and equipment. With the Turnkey Kit or with all the proper equipment **
5) Get final sign off by NRCS engineers proving the solar pump system is working to spec and will accomplish desired performance for years to come.

B. Try to Fund a Previously Installed System  
Use "NRCS Post Hoc Upgrade Kit" to upgrade components accessible at the surface to get system up to spec (assuming proper pipe and wire was used) and increase warranty to required 3 years.
1) Buy the "NRCS Post Hoc Upgrade Kit"
2) Fill out the Request for NRCS Documentation form with details on your well, water use, location and your contact info. Print the document that you can show the NRCS field office in your area. RPS Engineers are available to NRCS Engineers with questions during approval process
3) Install the extra components like the DC Disconnect Switch at the well head and ensure proper function and performance prior to site visit.
