Water Saving Rebates

Listed below are some current rebates available to residences. Visit the Saving Water Partnership for a
complete list of rebates.

Get a $30 rebate on toilets

Customers can receive a $30 rebate when they purchase a new WaterSense-labeled High-Efficiency Toilet (HET).

By replacing their old water-guzzling toilet with an efficient WaterSense-labeled model, customers can cut their utility bills by $260 a year* and reduce water waste – and utilities are offering qualified homeowners a $30 rebate as an incentive.

Toilets are the main source of water use in the home, accounting for nearly 30 percent of residential indoor water use. WaterSense-labeled toilets use less than 1.28 gallons per flush compared to the 3.5 gallons per flush or more used by toilets installed prior to 1994.
