Metropolitan offers a base incentive of $100 for qualifying flow monitor devices. Flow Monitor devices monitor your home’s water use and can help detect leaks. These devices are relatively new products. Research carefully to find the device that best fits your needs and budget.
Check “Estimate my Rebate”; not all devices qualify in all areas. This tool will be available when the program is launched and will help the applicant determine eligibility.
Applicant needs to have reliable Wi-Fi at the installation location, and a smart device such as a smartphone or tablet with app-accessibility to access information from the device.
It is important to check the type of water meter you have. Some flow monitor devices attach to the utility water meter and are only designed for a specific type of meter. Your local water agency may have installed meters that work with some flow monitor devices, but not others. Additionally, it is possible that at a future date, your utility may choose to upgrade to a different type of meter that would no longer be compatible with the device.
Incentive may be higher in some areas. Check “Estimate my Rebate” for more details.
This is a pilot program; funding is limited.
