WATER & ENERGY Upgrades that pay YOU to Save

NEW for Summer 2015!  PAYS® Commercial Landscape Pilot Program

Residents and businesses are encouraged to participate in Windsor Efficiency PAYS®, an innovative water conservation program that provides:

- Immediate Utility Bill Savings

- New Water Saving Fixtures and Landscape Improvements

- No Upfront Costs or Debt

Windsor Efficiency PAYS® is Simple 

It allows you to enjoy efficiency upgrades and “pay as you save®”, with no loan and no new debt associated with repayment. After installation of program measures, you start saving on your energy and water bills immediately. You pay a surcharge on your water bill with the following program assurances:

  • Your estimated energy and water savings will exceed the surcharge.
  • If you move or relocate and disclose your PAYS® measures and surcharge, your payment obligation ends.
  • If an installed measure fails during the repayment period and is not repaired, your payment obligation ends.

Windsor Efficiency PAYS® Eligible Upgrades

Certified contractors with the program have been pre-qualified and selected to contact Windsor residents and to install the following upgrade measures:

For Residential Customers:

Basic Package — Includes the latest in high efficiency showerheads, toilets, and faucet aerators. 

Standard Landscaping Package — Offers drought resistant, Russian River Friendly landsaping. 

For Commercial Customers:

Irrigation Retrofit  Increases irrigation system efficiency by installing Windsor-approved weather-based irrigation control systems (WBIC) and pressure reducing valves, and repairing existing irrigation system leaks and poor-performing spray heads.

To be eligible to install these measures as part of the Windsor Efficiency PAYS® program, participants must show that their current water and energy usage will enable them to achieve sufficient estimated savings from the installed measures.
