138 facilities pumping used for rice irrigation were analyzed in the region Fronteira Oeste of Rio Grande do Sul. The installations were classified by discharge height level: smaller than 10m; between 10 and 15m; between 15 and 20m; between 20 and 25m; and, larger than 25m. The possibility at a large energy conservation was verified. It was verified the requested net power of 4155 kW representing 47,44% of the installed power. The total power installed in the analyzed systems is 8757 kW. Losses main reasons: badly dimensioned piping; use of low efficiency pumps; maintenance lack; over dimensioned pumps; badly installed pumps; and, low power factor. The most efficient installations are those that present larger discharger height level. That is a consequence of the use of centrifugal pumps (they present better efficiency in discharger heights above to 10m) and to the fact that they present a larger demand of net power, forcing the farmer to be very careful with its installation. Where the heights of pumping are smaller, due to privileged topographical situation, there is a smaller concern with the costs. To make possible the comparison among systems with different water discharge heights, it was established a power index for unit of area and of height (W.ha-1.m-1). It indicates the demand for the irrigation of one hectare of farming, for one meter of water elevation. The efficient system should present values smaller than 30 W.ha-1.m-1. The values are between 25 W.ha-1.m-1 and 100 W.ha-1.m-1 in the analyzed systems,.
