High Efficiency Toilet & Urinal Rebates
ACWD offers a $150 rebate for each high use, high volume commercial toilet or urinal replaced with a qualifying High Efficiency Toilet (HET) or High Efficiency Urinal (HEU) at service area businesses and organizations. Sites must be pre-qualified through our survey program.
Weather-based Irrigation “Smart” Controller Rebates
A Smart controller uses weather data and site information to adjust irrigation watering times and frequency. More efficient watering means less waste, reduced run-off and healthier plants. Commercial and large landscape customers that replace their existing conventional irrigation controller with a "smart" irrigation controller may qualify for a rebate of up to $30* per active station. See our
for more information. Sites must be pre-qualified through our landscape survey program.
*Rebate is based on the number of active stations of each existing controller.
Water-Efficient Landscape Rebate Program
Multi-family complexes, Homeowners Associations with common landscaped areas, and commercial properties that convert lawns to water-efficient plantings can get a rebate*. The rebate is based on the number of square feet of lawn converted. ACWD is currently offering $0.50/sq.ft.
Please contact us to learn more.
*To be eligible for this rebate, customers must be pre-approved by ACWD, so please check with us first before beginning your landscape conversion project. Rebates are issued on a first-come, first served basis. Funding is limited. For additional lawn replacement ideas, please visit LoseYourLawn.org.
