To be eligible for an irrigation rebate, you must first complete an irrigation audit. After the audit, a customized report will be created for your property, and certain practices and products may be suggested to help you increase your water efficiency. The recommended products will be eligible for rebates. Rebate amounts will be determined by total heads, nozzles, or pressure-reducing valves installed and based on a 50% reduction of retail price. Eligibility for the rebate is dependent on a return visit from the City’s auditor to confirm proper installment based on recommendations and in the correct quantity. You may need an irrigation professional to assist you in installation, but that cost is not included in the rebate.
Smart Controllers, Weather Sensors, and Accessories
Smart controllers (also called ET controllers) ensure irrigation works in sync with weather and optimizes sprinkler run times. Because smart controllers can be more efficient than traditional, time-based irrigation controllers, they often reduce use by at least 10%, saving both money and water.
Rebates are available for qualifying smart controllers. We will pay for 50% the cost of the controller and all necessary accessories, up to a total of $300. The City of Greeley provides rebates for contractor-grade ET-based (weather adjusting) controllers, but does not provide rebates for retail-grade controllers. After testing many different controllers in the field, the following have shown particular success in Greeley’s climate and soil conditions:
Some irrigation systems apply water at a very high pressure. This causes misting -- a fine spray that appears as a fog over the system as it sprays. Rainbows are also often visible. Misting causes excessive evaporation and water drifting into other areas. A pressure-reducing valve will reduce misting by regulating the pressure and making your system more efficient.
Rotary nozzles operate by rotating streams of water over the landscape instead of the mist produced by spray head sprinklers. Installing rotary nozzles reduces water waste and applies water in the right place.
Water can be conserved in commercial, industrial, multi-family, non-profit and governmental properties by installing water efficient appliances and fixtures. In addition to the rebate program, we offer free indoor and outdoor audits to commercial properties and can help determine which products make sense for your organization.
Large scale projects, with rebates totaling more than $1,000, should be pre-approved to make sure funds are available. Please call (970) 350-9210 to make an audit appointment or to get a project pre-approved.
