Irrigation System Upgrade Rebate

Skip to page navigation

For commercial and multifamily properties

Get rebates for up to 50 percent of project costs for automatic irrigation system upgrades that save water. Upgrading hardware and your controller could help you reduce water waste and lower your water bill, all while maintaining a beautiful landscape.

Rebated upgrades could include weather-based irrigation controllers, rain sensors, low precipitation rate nozzles, drip irrigation, or other technology that improves the water-efficiency of an existing irrigation system.
