Outdoor Efficiency Rebates

If you’re thinking of ways to save water in the yard this year, take advantage of our suite of new rebates, while funding lasts.

All rebates/programs are subject to specific terms, applications and inspections. Call (909)866-5050 x 268 or email to confirm eligibility BEFORE removing, purchasing or installing turf or equipment. Programs may be added, changed or discontinued without notice. Rebates are subject to $250 maximum per household per year (excluding turf). Rebates (except turf) are applied as credit to your water bill. For more information, please read through the application and if your questions are not addressed, please email or call us at (909) 866-5050 x 268.
