No upfront costs for most measures
• Basic measures (toilets, showerheads, faucet aerators, LED bulbs). Basic measures must be installed to qualify for other upgrades.
No new debt
• Energy measures (common area lighting, central hot water, upgrades that reduce property owner utility bills) • Landscape measures (irrigation system repairs, weatherbased controls)
Estimated bill savings at least 25% more than PAYS® repayment Measure quality guaranteed Your payment obligation ends if you sell the building
Target properties • Multifamily properties that are City of Hayward water customers • Master-metered water and central water heating • 20 or more attached dwelling units (larger properties will experience larger savings, but buildings with 5 or more units may also participate)
