Free Weather-Based Irrigation Controllers Residential Landscape Program

As part of the Family of Suppliers, we offer training and free weather-based irrigation controllers (also known as smart controllers). Once SCV residents or their landscapers complete our workshop, they will receive a free weather-based irrigation controller that automatically adjusts the amount of time sprinklers are on as well as helpful hints on water conservation in landscaping. These controllers are available only for single family residential accounts. For controllers for homeowners associations, please see our large landscape program. You need to register on-line for our class. You can take the class on-line. To register for our classes, visit SCVH2OPrograms.com.

 

High Efficiency Clothes Washer (HECW) Rebate

CLWA, in cooperation with the Family of Water Suppliers, is funding rebates of up to $200 for high-efficiency washing machines with a water factor of 4.0 or less. These rebates are available for both residential and commercial accounts as long as funds are available. Contact your water retailer for details.

 

Large Landscape and Commercial, Institutional and Industrial Rebate Programs

CLWA is funding Family of Water Suppliers rebate programs that give homeowners associations, landscape maintenance districts, parks, businesses, schools and non-profits the opportunity to receive rebates for weather-based irrigation controllers and landscape modifications. The Large Landscape and Commercial, Institutional and Industrial Rebate Programs offer two separate options for rebates. Customers may take advantage of either option or both options as long as funds are available. The steps below are mandatory and must be followed in order.

Option One – Weather-Based Irrigation Controller (WBIC) Rebate

  1. Customer initiates contact by calling conservation coordinator at (661) 297-1600. More detailed instructions and application will be provided by CLWA.
  2. CLWA conducts a pre-inspection of existing controllers.
  3. CLWA conducts a brief educational presentation to stakeholders (i.e., HOA, Board Members, Property Manager) on use and limitations of weather-based irrigation controllers.
  4. Installation of controllers by customer. Controllers must appear on this list to be eligible for rebate.*
  5. CLWA conducts a post-inspection of new controllers.
  6. Submit application to CLWA. Rebate is given from CLWA to customer at $25/active station.

From this step, it may take up to six weeks to receive a check from CLWA. There is a limit of $21,000 for the rebate. *Sometimes, it may be more cost-effective for the customer to upgrade existing traditional controllers to weather-based controllers. Funding for rebates in these cases is evaluated on a case by case basis.

Option Two – Turf (Grass) Removal Rebates (for HOAs)

  1. Customer initiates contact by calling conservation coordinator at (661) 297-1600. More detailed instructions and application will be provided by CLWA.
