PHOENIX — The Chandler City Council has voted to increase its residential grass removal rebate tenfold and the change will go into effect at the start of October.

The rebate will be $2 per square foot, up from 20 cents.

The minimum size to qualify will decrease from 1,000 square feet to 500 square feet. Chandler residents with a utility account could save up to $3,000 with the change.

It’s not the grass-related rebate coming to the East Valley city.

Commercial customers can save up to $75,000 through large landscape grass removal projects that convert the landscape to a low-water-use one.

The program will reimburse 25% of total landscape costs plus $3 a square foot removed for certain types of non-functional turf.

Homeowners associations and multi-family customers with grass in common areas are also eligible. Spaces have to be a minimum of 5,000 square feet.

The final program, a water-efficient technology rebate, is new and is designed to improve efficiency for commercial customers.

The program rewards the installation of new technologies that use real-time data designed to reduce use.

The rebate is for 50% of the cost of the technology with a maximum of $10,000.

We want to hear from you.
