Outdoor Rebates

Big Sky residents can receive rebates through the Outdoor Rebate Program.  By installing weather-based smart controllers, rain sensors, sprinkler heads and nozzles, and performing spring outdoor audits/system checkups, you can save water and money.

Outdoor audits/system checkups may be done by a certified irrigation technician (receives rebate) or by following a self-guided checklist.  All products must be installed after July 1, 2016, to qualify.  Applications will be processed on a first come, first serve basis, subject to funding availability.
