Rebates and Services

Water Efficient Landscape Program

Save water, beautify your landscaping, and reduce your maintenance time!

The City of Pleasanton is offering $0.25 per square foot to Residential Customers and $.50 per square foot to Irrigation Meter Customers who replace existing thirsty front or sidewalk-visible lawns with drought tolerant landscaping.

In conjunction with Zone 7’s Water-Efficient Lawn Conversion Rebate, you can increase your rebate value by applying to BOTH rebate programs simultaneously. Customers can get up to $1,000 (Residential) or $5,500 (Commercial/Irrigation) by participating in both programs! (See program Terms and Conditions).

Maximum rebates through the City of Pleasanton are $250 for single family and $3,000 for irrigation and commercial customers. Funding is limited, and based on a first-come, first-served basis.

Weather-Based Irrigation Controller Rebate

In conjunction with Zone 7, Pleasanton offers Weather-Based Irrigation Controller Rebates up to $75 for single-family residences, and up to $100 for multi-family residences. The maximum rebate for non-residential properties is up to 50% of the cost of the new controller, with a maximum rebate of $3,000.

Non-residential customers: Only one rebate per water account number. For example, if your property has three water account numbers, you can apply for three controllers on one rebate application.

Water-Efficient Irrigation Rebate for Irrigation Customers

Reduce outdoor water use and promote a healthy and attractive landscape by improving watering efficiency through the installation of water-efficient irrigation hardware.

Irrigation meter customers participating in the City of Pleasanton’s Water-Efficient Landscape Program are eligible for rebates towards qualifying water-efficient irrigation equipment utilized on the converted landscape area. Qualifying equipment includes rain sensors, pressure regulating devices and rotary nozzles. See Terms and Conditions for full details.

Water Efficient Washing Machines

In cooperation with Zone 7, you can receive rebates of up to $100 for qualifying purchases of high-efficiency Energy Star Most Efficient Clothes Washers.
