Can I get a rebate for my controller?

Utility Rebates

The Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller, Generation 2 Smart Sprinkler Controller, and Generation 1 Smart Sprinkler Controller are all EPA WaterSense labeled. The controller is also SWAT (Smart Water Application Technologies) tested. This means the smart sprinkler controllers qualify for rebates up to the cost of the controller in some water districts and utilities.
