Rebates are per station
based on station capacity
Rebates vary by water agency and are subject to change.
These sophisticated systems are designed for larger irrigated areas such as golf courses, parks, schools and large commercial complexes. These systems consist of a master controller (often a PC computer) which tells the valves at remote locations to open and close. In most cases the central controller is used to program separate satellite controllers that are closer to the valves.
For example, a city parks department might have a central control system where the central controller is located at park headquarters, and separate satellite controllers are located at each of the city parks. The park department irrigation supervisor could then turn on (or off) any valve at any of the parks using the central control at the headquarters. Most of these units do a lot more- they monitor water flows to detect leaks, can tell if a valve is broken, adjust watering times based on the current weather, and control many other additional irrigation components. With smart controllers installed on your commercial property, you will be able to avoid over-watering and excessive run-off by scheduling the amount of irrigation based on the type of landscape and current weather conditions. You can protect your landscape investment and improve the health and look of your landscape.
Statistics show that as much as 50% of commercial water is used for irrigation. With many cases of over-irrigation, excessive run-off and poor landscape planning, water agencies are tapping common sense and technology to improve water conservation efforts and enhance the health and beauty of our landscapes.
NOTE: Purchase of new irrigation controller using weather-based information (either from a suite of sensors, on-site weather station, or remote data source) to modify irrigation schedule will qualify for rebates, refer to the approved device list for specific models. When upgrading existing irrigation controllers to a computerized central system, rebates are contingent upon installation of approved technologies enabling the centralized communication system and the ability of the controller to use weather-based information. Eligible improvements may include software, communication devices, weather stations, enclosures, master valves, flow sensors and flow meters.
