For many water systems, the electric (or energy) bill is one of the largest operating expenses regularly incurred by the water system. It is also one of the most controllable operating expenses a water system will have. In order to begin to save money from energy conservation measures, it is first necessary to know where you are starting from. This webinar will help you to learn how to understand your electric bill(s) and their various components; how to compare different electricity rate schedules (if available from your electricity provider) as a means of looking for a more cost-saving, advantageous rate schedule (similar to shopping for the best cell phone plan you can find); and how to use the Environmental Finance Center’s new Energy Usage Baseline tool, an Excel-based tool to help you establish the baseline of electricity usage for your water system, and track the effectiveness of energy conservation measures across time that you adopt.

Attendees will:

  • Learn how to understand correctly your water system’s electric bill, including customer charges, energy charges, demand charges, demand ratchets, and other components.
  • From familiarization with your electric bill, learn how to potentially save money by taking steps such as making process changes; or comparing different electricity rate schedules in order to request your electricity provider switch you to a more advantageous rate schedule, if available.
  • Gain an understanding of how to use the Environmental Finance Center’s new Energy Usage Baseline Tool, an Excel-based tool to assist you in establishing the baseline of electricity usage for your water utility, and tracking the effectiveness of energy conservation measures across time.

Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance for viewing the webinar. This webinar has not been submitted to licensing agencies for preapproval of continuing education credits. If you need assistance in applying for credit to your licensing agency, please contact EducationServices@awwa.org.
