Water Saved - Energy Saved

It takes water to make energy; it takes energy to move water. It can take up to 4 times the water you use daily to produce your home's energy. So turn off your lights and save water!

  • Reduce showering time to save both water and energy. A 10 minute shower uses approximately 50 gallons of hot water. Shoot for a 5 minute shower.
  • Run your washing machine and dishwasher only when they have a full load or adjust water levels for smaller loads.  
  • Insulate hot water pipes so water does not have to run as long to get hot water to the faucet. Heating water uses a large amount of energy.
  • Water and energy are interconnected: It takes energy to transport and treat water, so by conserving water you are also conserving energy! Water is used to generate electricity, so by conserving energy you are also conserving water!
