There are two possible rain barrel rebates for San Diego area residents.
- The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California is providing rain barrel rebates of $75 per barrel, up to 4 barrels per home. The minimum size barrel is 50 gallons. For information regarding how to get the rebate, see their instructions at Rain Barrels: Rain is a Terrible Thing to Waste.
- The City of San Diego Public Utilities Department administers a “Residential Rainwater Harvesting (Rain Barrel) Rebate Pilot Program“. The City will reimburse City of San Diego residents up to $1 for every gallon of rain barrel storage capacity (up to 400 gallons and $400 per property). If you are a resident of the City of San Diego you can apply for both this rebate AND the one from the Metropolitan Water District!
Remember, in either case, home made rain barrels are not eligible for rebates.
