Date & Time:
The Reducing Costs Through Energy Efficiency training will be held on the following date and time:
April 24 | 2:00PM-4:00PM
This training is being held in Pacific Time.
Description:Nearly four percent of the nation’s electricity is consumed by water and wastewater facilities, and industry experts are predicting that energy costs are likely to increase 20 percent over the next 15 years. Water and wastewater treatment costs can easily consume 30 to 50 percent of a small community’s entire budget.
Historically, water and wastewater facilities were designed for peak capacity, with little consideration for operational efficiency. An energy audit performed by trained and certified personnel specializing in water and wastewater energy use can often uncover potential energy savings of 10 to 50 percent annually. But even a cursory examination done by in-house staff can often result in substantial energy savings.
Participants will learn:
· How to identify the biggest "energy wasters" in your operation
· How to calculate the break-even point (payback) of retrofitting obsolete equipment
· The difference between Level1 (in-house) and Level 2 (contracted) energy audits
The recommended audience includes system operators, managers, board members, and community leaders with an interest in energy cost reduction.
This training will be hosted online on GoToTraining.
