Water conservation is a growing opportunity for many businesses around the country. With the West Coast droughts driving new policies and higher costs, building operators should re-study their operations use of domestic and process water, with a new eye towards conservation investment opportunities.
Like energy, we start with analyzing usage and installing sub-metering for larger operations. In manufacturing facilities, process water can typically be used more efficiently, through adding sensors, solenoid valves and storage tanks, all without impacting production. Cooling towers are good targets to optimize by adding controls that manage run times based on variable demand.
And the most basic upgrades for domestic water using low flow toilets, faucet and shower heads are straight-forward opportunities, often supported with financial rebates from your local water utility provider.
