The City of Derby is offering a Water Conservation Rebate Program in 2023 thanks to a program funded by the City of Wichita. The purpose of the rebate program is to encourage residents to reduce water consumption.
A $25,000 rebate allowance will be shared amongst Wichita’s wholesale customers, of which Derby is one. Rebates will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are depleted, and will be credited to the Derby Utility customer’s account.
Rebates are available to all Derby Utility customers, including residential and commercial, owner-occupied, and rentals. Any qualifying device purchased between Jan. 1, 2023 and Dec. 31, 2023, is eligible for the program, while funds are available.
Eligible items include: high efficiency clothes washers, high efficiency dishwashers, high efficiency toilets, dual flush toilet conversion kits, rain barrels, rain sensor shut-off devices, showerheads, and smart irrigation controllers. There is a limit of five qualifying devices per City of Derby utility account. For more information on the program please visit Derbyks.com/waterconservation.
Rebates may be claimed immediately and will be awarded up to 90 days from the purchase date. Customers are required fill out a rebate application and provide original copies of receipts to verify the purchase. Apply online at Derbyks.com/water or stop by City Hall at 611 N. Mulberry Rd. to pick up a paper application. Failure to provide the required information will result in the rebate request being denied.
