Get a discounted “smart” irrigation controller at the SRP Water Conservation Expo!

Valley residents are invited to learn how to save water and money by participating in the eighth annual SRP Water Conservation Expo on March 7, 2015. Those attending the free expo will learn about water-saving devices for the yard and home. Booths featuring SRP energy-efficiency and environmental programs will also be featured. And it’s a great chance to visit representatives from Valley cities, the Arizona Municipal Water Users Association, the Central Arizona Project and Water-Use it Wisely campaign.

Water Expo 2014

The first 800 SRP water shareholders or power customers who register for and attend the expo will be eligible to purchase a “smart” irrigation controller Rain Bird ESP-SMTe for $50 plus tax (retail value $314.15).* The WaterSense-labeled four-station controller, which is easily expandable to 13 stations, uses weather data to manage outdoor watering schedules more effectively; it can deliver water savings of up to 25 percent – a significant savings considering landscape watering can account for up to 70 percent of a household’s water use. Three-station expansion modules are available at the event for $15 per module plus tax (retail value $53.55)*. *Customer is responsible for sales tax on the Ewing discounted prices of $125 for the controller and $25 for the module).

SRP customers who attend the expo will receive a water-saving Niagara showerhead, a $14.99 value, while supplies last. Only one smart irrigation controller rebate and one showerhead are available per household. To register and get more information about the Water Expo and the smart irrigation controller discount, visit srpnet.com/expo.

Check with your water provider, as some offer controller rebates and may be able to assist with the cost of the unit such as the cities of Chandler, Peoria, and Scottsdale.
