The City of Santa Barbara's program is for all City water customers (residential and commercial) and covers a portion of the cost of approved irrigation equipment and landscape materials.

Irrigation Equipment: 50% of the cost of drip irrigation parts, sprinkler system efficiency retrofits, rotating sprinkler nozzels, and equipment for a laundry to landscape graywater system. 
  • Water-wise Plants and Mulch: 50% of the cost of water-wise plants and mulch. Planted areas must be covered with a 3-inch layer of mulch.
  • Smart Irrigation Controller: 50% of cost of the smart irrigation controller. Smart irrigation controllers work on a simple principle: provide the appropriate watering schedule; automatically adjust for weather changes; irrigate based on the needs of your plants. 
  • For Residential Customers:
    Any combination of irrigation equipment and planting costs may qualify up to a one-time, maximum rebate of $1,000.  

    For Commercial and Multi-Family Customers Including HOAs:
    Any combination of items above may qualify for a maximum rebate amount of $2,000 per account serving irrigated area and $4,000 per site.  

    Projects must be approved in advance and landscapes for new construction are not eligible. Sales receipts and/or contractor invoices are required for all rebates. For more information, and to download the application, click here.
