Energy Use Assessment Tool Available from the US EPA
A few weeks ago MAP staff conducted an energy audit in Windsor, MO. The completed audit will contain recommendations for reducing energy costs in their city offices and water and wastewater utilities. Let’s face it – in this economy, we’re all looking for ways to save money. SmallWaterSupply.org has posted information on their blog about an easy-to-use tool developed by the US EPA to help small-to-medium sized water and wastewater systems conduct a utility bill and equipment analysis to determine their individual baseline energy use and costs. This is a great first step before conducting a full-scale energy audit. You’ll also find a handout you can download that explains Understanding Your Electric Bill, as well as information about an upcoming US EPA webinar that will help you to find out how your system can become more energy-efficient by using this simple tool.
