Smart Irrigation Controller Rebate

We offer rebates as an incentive for customers to purchase and install Smart Irrigation Controllers. It is estimated that up to 50% of the water applied to landscapes is wasted due to incorrect controller settings and infrequent adjusting of those settings. Smart Irrigation Controllers adjust the watering schedule automatically as the weather changes.

Eligibility

Rebates are available for single family residential properties within the CCWD Retail and Wholesale Service Area.

Rebate Amount

The rebate is $12 per active (used) irrigation station (zone) up to 50% of the list cost of the controller(s). Limit one rebate per customer per address. For example, if you purchase a smart irrigation controller and you have seven (7) irrigation stations (zone), the rebate would be $84 – (12 x 7) or 50% of the list price, whichever is less.

Limit one controller rebate per customer per address without pre-approval. Multiple controllers per address may be allowed on a case-by-case basis. Pre-approval is required.

Qualifying Smart Controllers

Qualified Smart Irrigation Controllers must be EPA WaterSense labeled. Look for the EPA WaterSense label on the box or cover of the Smart Irrigation Controller(s) you purchase. The EPA WaterSense website has a product search feature that allows you to view all labeled smart irrigation controllers by selecting irrigation controllers in the product category dropdown menu. For Smart Irrigation Controllers without the EPA WaterSense label, contact us for approval prior to purchase.
