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.

Interruptible operation of existing projects in the case study areas appears desirable.
