Green Rebate Programs
Water Efficiency Program

Reduce your water consumption for almost anything that uses water.

High-Efficiency Toilets

The High-Efficiency Toilet (HET) Incentive Program is a water conservation rebate program that offers Riverside Public Utilities' customers a chance to replace high water- use toilets, or upgrade Ultra Low Flush Toilet models with water-saving HET models. HETs are the new standard in water-efficient toilets and use only 1.28 gallons of water per flush (gpf) or less. There are also Dual Flush HETs that offer a separate, low water use flush for liquids that only use between .8 to 1.1 gpf.



What are the HET program benefits?
In addition to the cash benefits you can receive for replacing older, high water- use fixtures with HETs, you'll also benefit from the reduced overall water use inside the house. This can mean up to 4,000 gallons of water saved each year, leading to big savings on your RPU water bill.



What is the rebate amount?
Riverside Public Utilities' water customers can receive rebates of up to $100* for purchasing and installing a qualified High-Efficiency Toilet (standard or Dual Flush) that replaces an older, high water- use toilet.

Rebates are limited to four new HET installations or four HET upgrades per account.

* For purchases made after July 1, 2015.  For purchases made prior to July 1, 2015 the rebate is $50.
