Commercial, Industrial, and Institutional (CII) Water Efficient Technology (WET) Incentive Application

  1. Program Details

    The Alameda County Water District's (ACWD's) Commercial, Industrial, and Institutional (CII) Water Efficient Technology (WET) Program provides an incentive to CII customers to implement equipment changes that reduce water waste. Projects can include onsite water reuse, cooling tower efficiency upgrades, and any other equipment that results in measurable water savings, including custom equipment.

  2. Pre-Rinse Spray Valve in Commercial Kitchen
  3. Incentive Amount

    The incentive amount will be based on annual savings at $4 per hundred cubic feet [one hundred cubic feet (CCF) is equivalent to 748 gallons] saved, up to 50% of the cost of equipment. Labor is not included. The incentive amount will cover the cost of qualifying expenses only (materials and equipment costs) paid by the customer up to the maximum incentive amount.

  4. Maximums

    There is a maximum incentive of $10,000 for commercial and industrial customers per site and a $20,000 maximum for industrial customers per site.

  11. CII WET Program Terms & Conditions/Agreement
    • Measures that are installed prior to application approval are not eligible for the incentive. 
    • Volume of existing water use for the measure must be estimated using a reliable and industry accepted method appropriate for the type of project (e.g. submetering). 
    • The equipment upgrade must remain in place for the estimated life of equipment or in perpetuity, if the equipment is not expected to expire, to ensure long-term water savings. 
    • ACWD reserves the right to conduct an onsite inspection if additional water savings data or project information is needed. Customers must participate in an onsite inspection of equipment or products, if required. 
    • Labor and installation costs will not be reimbursed through this incentive program. 
    • The CII customer will need to monitor savings and report the measured savings, including photo documentation of achieved savings, to ACWD one year after the project completion date. 
    • The maximum incentive amount will be issued in the Notice to Proceed. The maximum incentive authorized prior to project implementation cannot be exceeded, even if water savings achieved is more than what was estimated. 
    • ACWD may charge the customer for some, or all, of the incentive amount, at the discretion of ACWD, if the customer does not submit a water savings report after one year, if equipment is removed prior to 5 years after installation, or if the estimated water savings that was used to determine the incentive amount is not achieved. 
    • The incentive check may take 6 to 8 weeks to be processed and received after all required documentation is submitted. 
    • Incentives may be considered taxable income. Please consult with your tax accountant to determine what impact this may have on your tax situation.
