chapter  5
Energy-Efcient Equipment
Pages 20

In Section I, we discussed benchmarking and developing audit results that can identify a number of changes, large and small, that can be made to save on energy costs. Drinking water and wastewater facilities have many options to conserve energy, ranging from changing light bulbs and upgrading pumps and motors to installing co-generation systems and renewable energy technologies. We discuss many of these energy-saving options in this and subsequent chapters and provide case studies to demonstrate how some facilities have used their equipment, technology, and operating strategies to save money and reduce their impact.
