Have some of your home improvements this summer included replacement of toilets or shower heads? Dishwashers? Washing machines? Did you improve your irrigation system by adding timers? Rain sensors? Did you know that you can apply for a rebate if those replacements reduce your overall consumption of water? The City of Shenandoah offers up to $250 per item to improve the water use efficiency in your home ($500 total appliance rebate and $550 irrigation system total rebate per home not including service or tax costs).
 
If you have made qualifying replacements since January 1, 2018, you can participate in this rebate as we officially kick off the program. Beginning October 1, any replacement rebate applications will have to be submitted within 30 days of the repair. For more information and necessary forms for submission, visit our website: Shenandoah Water Conservation Rebate Program.
 
Businesses, we aren’t leaving you out either! We have a separate rebate for commercial improvements that replace food service equipment with more water efficient models. You can earn up to $1000 on ENERGY STAR upgrades for a maximum rebate of $2500 (not including labor and taxes). Improvements to your central computer irrigation system will also allow you to rebate the replacement of flow sensors, spray nozzle conversion and addition of master valves can get you a rebate up to $2000. What better time to make the changes you’ve wanted to make to become more water efficient.
 
Remember, those of you who have made applicable changes to your homes or businesses in 2018 can apply for the rebates before the program officially starts October 1. Once October 1 gets here, you have 30 days to make a rebate application for item(s) purchased and replaced after that date. The clock is ticking… don’t leave money on the table! Check out the website for more information.
