Water Conservation Rebate Program
Purpose: To encourage a permanent reduction in the amount of water used inside and outside of the home. Customers who assist the City’s water conservation efforts by installing specific water saving technologies, may receive a credit on their utility bill. Rebates are available to City of Peoria water customers.
Procedure: Requests for rebate applications can be made through the "Request for Rebate Application Form" online, through e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling (623) 773–7286. Once your name, address, phone number, and account number have been verified, an official application will be sent via email or standard mail, whichever you choose.
Note: All rebate application requests and rebate credits prior to July 1, 2014 are ineligible for this program. A limited number of rebates are available each fiscal year. Rebates will be given on a first come, first served basis from the date and time the rebate application is received. The City of Peoria reserves the right to suspend this program at any time during the year.
