The Plant Rebate Program offers rebates to residents who purchase perennial, native or drought-tolerant plants listed on the Qualifying Plants List (pdf) . A rebate of 50 percent of the cost of the plant(s), to a maximum of $50, is applied to your utility account. Maximum one rebate per utility account regardless of the rebate amount. People who participated in the program in past years are not eligible to receive another rebate.
Rebate application forms are available online from April 18 to October 28, 2022.
