Make a Splash with New Pool Equipment Rebates
As a pool owner, you enjoy a clean pool, but did you know that the energy needed to run a filtration pump and pool cleaner can be a significant part of your monthly energy bill?

By replacing your single-speed or two speed pump and hydraulic cleaner with more efficient models, you can maintain a sparkling swimming pool while lowering your costs.

Splash offers rebates for installing qualifying energy efficient variable-speed pool pumps, as well as a new rebate for robotic pool cleaners.

Care For Your Cool
In San Diego, we use our air conditioner in the summer and heater in the winter.
The AC Quality Care Program provides residents with specially trained and skilled
contractors to perform year-round Quality Maintenance of your heating and
cooling system to help ensure a reliable and energy-efficient operation.

With a $250 initial rebate, SDG&E customers are eligible to receive a System
Assessment & Improvement for $50, a service designed to increase indoor
comfort, air quality and energy efficiency. How cool is that!?

Summer Saving Tips

  • Set your air conditioner to 78 degrees or higher. Changing the A/C from 72 to 78 degrees can save up to 12% of your cooling costs.
  • Switch to fans when you can. Use a portable or ceiling fan instead of A/C when you can comfortably do so.
  • Freshen A/C filters regularly. Make sure the filter in your central A/C is so it runs more efficiently.
  • Weatherstrip and caulk drafty doors and windows to keep conditioned air and save up to 5% on cooling costs.
  • Power down equipment. Use power strips or unplug electronics such as game consoles and TVs that draw power even when switched off.
  • Make the light choice. When you replace lights, products such as LEDs and CFLs.
  • Use a pool or spa cover.  Covers can reduce heat loss by up to 90%.
  • Filter your swimming pool for less when you switch to variable-speed pool pump and get one of our rebates.
  • Block direct sunlight. Close window coverings, or use solar reflective films, awnings or trees to shade exposed windows.
  • Target your top opportunities to save energy and money with the energy management tools you’ll find in My Account.
