Big Roofs

Big Roofs = Big Rebate!

We encourage community centers, religious organizations, apartment buildings and businesses to participate in the RainWise program. The larger the roof, the bigger the rebate to keep Puget Sound clean.

Here are some RainWise Big Roof case studies that exemplify benefits to property owners.

RainWise Benefits for Large Properties:

Save Money 

For properties with large roofs, the RainWise rebate typically covers the entire cost of installation. In addition, property owners can apply for the Stormwater Facilities Credit and save money on their annual drainage fee.

Curbside Appeal 

RainWise provides you with the opportunity to beautify your building’s landscape and collect water for summer irrigation. Who doesn’t love a nice garden?

Environmental Stewardship 

RainWise is about protecting our local waters and educating communities. RainWise can help you become a role model for environmental stewardship.

Volunteer Engagement 

Your RainWise installation provides opportunities for volunteer engagement, neighborhood events and community building. In addition, the RainWise team can work with you to organize ground breaking ceremonies, educational signage, workshops and environmental stewardship demonstrations.
