The long-lasting and far-reaching effects of COVID-19 are more than most of us anticipated. With hundreds of thousands of businesses shutting their doors and millions of Americans dealing with unemployment, Smart Rain has worked to identify ways to give back and help where possible.
Smart Rain has been approved for a green stimulus package of $1 million. Funds are reserved in the form of a grant program to help commercial property owners and managers decrease their operating costs during the global pandemic. Read on for more information about our stimulus grant opportunity and how to apply.
The Purpose of the Grant
One way that commercial property owners and managers are losing money is in their irrigation and lawn care maintenance costs. Almost 50% of the water in the United States is lost due to poor watering systems and methods. Wasted water is likely increasing your water costs for your property.
Stimulus grant funds can be used to update your water system to be more efficient and less wasteful to help save you money on your water utility bill. Our team will come out to perform all the upgrades and get your system into money/water-saving mode so that you can proactively lessen your financial strain during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Water Management System
Smart Rain uses a smart irrigation controller to completely control your entire water system on your property. The smart controller is capable of handling up to 48 zones and allows you to set watering specifications for each zone — meaning that each area will be perfectly watered every time. All functionality is conveniently controlled by your smartphone.
See How It Works
Your smart controller has three sensors: flow, moisture, and rain. The flow sensor monitors the amount of water coming out of each valve and will alert you if the flow changes from your settings. The moisture sensor monitors evaporation and precipitation to ensure that your system is only running long enough to maintain optimal soil moisture levels. If it starts to rain before or during your watering cycle, the system automatically turns off so as not to use unnecessary water.
Here to Help
COVID-19 has had a global effect and attempts are still being made to bring the outbreak under control. In the meantime, the green stimulus grant is being offered as a way to help commercial property owners save money as they navigate the financial turmoil surrounding coronavirus. Smart Rain is helping by making sure clients save money and water on their properties. Your property is your significant investment and it needs to be protected, particularly during the pandemic.
