Turf Removal Program Rebates
Turf grass is one of the most water-intensive plants in your landscape. Its high water use and frequent maintenance make it a time-consuming and expensive yard option. By changing turf to a California Friendly™ yard of drought tolerant plants, you can save water and money and do your part to help overcome California’s drought situation. To help with turf removal projects, rebates range from $1.00 to $3 per square foot of turf removed depending on your water provider.
What are rebates? Rebates are money that you receive after you’ve upgraded to new, energy-saving products. They are an instant way to get cash back for your business. If you’ve recently bought a piece of equipment or a new appliance, you could be eligible for a rebate.
What are incentives? Incentives are for pre-approved projects that retrofit or install new energy efficient equipment to save energy. Your incentive amount is calculated by the amount of energy the project saves. The more you save, the more money you’ll earn.
Other ways to save There are other ways you can receive financial support by managing your energy consumption. These include tax credits, energy efficiency financing, retrofit incentives, and new construction incentives. You may also qualify for financial incentives by using certain types of renewable energy, such a solar or wind power.
