I know everyone on here hates the government, but stop in and talk to your local NRCS. They have engineers on staff that will help you with design weather you want cost share or not. Also EQIP program can help pay for pipeline, tanks, cross fence to help with rotational grazing, might even help with new solar well.
Takes over 2 years to get funding though... Also at what the cost share is right now especially for the well/pipeline it doesn't even near cover the complete costs of just the materials even if you're doing the work yourself. However if you're doing other projects like perimeter and cross fencing as well as the drinks they seem to pay a good bit over the cost of materials so the hope is a guy can get it to balance out.
