According to WaterWorld, the U.S. Department of Energy is helping water companies decrease energy expenses. Over the past five years, companies that are a part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings, Better Plants program have saved a total of $2.4 billion when it comes to energy expenses. The program has grown about 25% for more than a decade. Businesses have battled with costly energy and treatment expenses in recent years to keep up with public concerns over water quality.
Not only can the Department of Energy’s program can help water agencies cut down on costs and save money, but the program can help decrease the amount of environment pollution caused by companies, making agencies more socially responsible.
Ernest Moniz, Secretary of Energy, said, "When companies save energy, they also save money and reduce harmful carbon pollution. This is especially true in the manufacturing sector, where energy costs are often a significant contributor to total operating costs. Manufacturers participating in the Better Plants program, including our new partners in the water and wastewater treatment sector, are leading the way in showing how energy efficiency is a smart business strategy, as well as a smart conservation strategy that will help to protect our environment for future generations."
