In early 2015, Beverly Hills expanded the water conservation rebate program. Under the revised program, the City will increase rebates on the purchase of select water-efficient devices. A second program will subsidize a one- on-one coaching session that would educate the City's water customers on how to install water-efficient irrigation systems and drought- tolerant landscaping.

Examples of some of the rebates and subsidies under the expanded rebate programs include:
  • Zero and Ultra-Low Retrofit Urinal - rebate up from $200 to $500 for commercial properties.
