Hot Water Recirculator Rebate Program – $100
Effective January 14, 2013, the Water Conservation Rebate Program is closed and no longer distributing or accepting rebate applications. The Water Conservation Rebate Program will resume at the start of the next fiscal year in July 1, 2013 pending City Council budget approval.
Purpose: To encourage a permanent reduction in the amount of water used through the hot water heater by the installation of a hot water recirculation system.
Description: Hot water recirculators provide instant hot water to your faucet. They are installed under the sink furthest from the hot water heater or directly on the hot water heater. When hot water is desired, the recirculator pumps the “colder” hot water back into the hot water heater through the cold water line. Once the hot water reaches the desired temperature, it is allowed to pass through your faucet. The process results in less water wasted down the drain and less time wasted by you!
Requirements: An account holder will be eligible to receive a rebate if he/she meets the following qualifications:
A City of Peoria water or sewer customer (not sewer or trash only). Must have individual account directly billed by the City of Peoria.
Hot water recirculator purchased on or after July 1, 2013.
- Each recirculator is only eligible for a one-time rebate.
- The hot water recirculator includes a built in timer or has on-demand capabilities so the device runs only when needed.
Procedure: All potential applicants must first complete an Rebate Application Request Form. To request an application, complete the online REBATE APPLICATION REQUEST FORM or call (623) 773-7286. Once your name, address, phone number, and account number have been verified, an official application will be sent through the mail. After installing the hot water recirculator and completing the application, submit it along with a copy of your purchase receipt. The Environmental Resources Division staff will review your application, purchase receipt and schedule an inspection, if necessary.
NOTE: No inspection is needed if a licensed contractor or plumber installs the hot water recirculator. If someone else installed the device, you may be subject to an inspection by a City of Peoria employee. Random inspections will be performed on some self-installations. If you are selected to receive an inspection, you will be contacted to schedule an appointment.
After the inspection (if necessary) and approval of your application, $100 will be credited to your City of Peoria utility account within 1-2 billing cycles. You will be notified by Environmental Resources Division staff when this occurs.
