Zone 7 offering rebates for self-adjusting 'smart' irrigation controllers

Devices save money, water by adjusting to weather conditions

Swap out your outdated irrigation system controllers for new self-adjusting "smart" controllers and save both water and money with Zone 7 Water Agency's "Smart Irrigation Controller Rebate Program."

Smart Controllers reduce water consumption by using local weather data and soil moisture measurements to determine when to turn irrigation systems on and off. Easy to install and program, the controllers adjust to current conditions and keep plants and landscaping healthy by letting you customize waterings, Zone 7 officials said.

The maximum rebate for a Smart Controller in 2020 is up to half of the customer costs, with a $75 maximum rebate for single-family residence, $100 for multi-family residences or $3,000 for non-residential properties.

Smart hose/faucet type timers are not included in the rebate program; non-residential customers are limited to one rebate per water account number. For example, a property with three water account numbers can apply for up to three controllers on one rebate application.
