Water rebates are still available this fiscal year for efficient upgrades to your home and landscape. There are several water-saving rebates available to city of Peoria utility customers who wish to be more conscious of their water usage.

To be eligible, you must be a city of Peoria utility customer. All rebate application requests must have purchase dates within the last year to be eligible. Rebates are given on a first come, first served basis from the date and time the rebate application is received. Residential rebates include:

Residential High Efficiency Toilet Rebate
A $100 rebate is available to water or sewer customers who upgrade their high water use toilets with high-efficiency Environmental Protection Agency WaterSense units in their homes. High-efficiency toilets (HETs) use less than 1.3 gallons per flush. The new toilet must carry the EPA WaterSense label.

Residential Smart Irrigation Controller Rebate
A credit of up to $250 is available to customers who purchase and install a new smart irrigation controller reviewed by WaterSense. Smart irrigation controllers differ from conventional irrigation controllers with the ability to automatically adjust to environmental conditions such as wind, rain, temperature, moisture, and evapotranspiration. Sewer and trash-only customers are ineligible.

Residential Tree Planting Rebate Program
The city of Peoria is committed to sustainability and the benefits of a healthy community forest. Not only do trees provide valuable shade, but they also benefit air quality, the local watershed, native wildlife, and if planted properly can reduce energy use at home. If the right tree for the right place is used, you can maximize all the above benefits and still have a drought tolerant landscape.

Peoria will offer a “treebate” of up to $50 for Peoria Water Customers who plant an approved tree species (see website for details). A maximum of two tree rebates per house. All rebates are first come, first served. Trees must be less than 1 year old.

Residential Xeriscape Conversion Program for Existing Homes
Homeowners can earn a credit of up to $1,650 by converting high-water use landscaping (i.e., grass) to Xeriscape (low water use landscaping that includes plant material).

Residential Xeriscape Rebate for New Homes
Water customers can receive a credit of $150 if they purchase a newly constructed home within the last year and choose Xeriscape landscaping.
