E.M. Teams, Baselines, and Data Collection (2)

For many water systems, the electric (or energy) bill is one of the largest expenses regularly incurred by the water utility. It is also one of the most controllable expenses a water utility will have. However, water utility managers oftentimes never see the bill. Understanding the utility’s energy expenses is one of the first steps to controlling and likely reducing energy expenses. This webinar focuses on how to conduct an energy audit of your water system, including how to collect data and construct an energy use baseline. These are key steps in preparing to select energy management projects for implementation for a water system.

Through this webinar, viewers will:

– Learn the first four steps of implementing an energy management plan
– Understand the process of completing an energy audit
– Hear from a water system that has placed energy management and conservation as the paramount operational goal of the District and has realized over $300,000 per year in savings as a result
