AEA becomes EPA WaterSense Promotional Partner
The Association for Energy Affordability was recently named as a WaterSense partner by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
“WaterSense” is the catch phrase coined by the EPA to describe the commonsense benefits of taking steps to conserve water in your home, your properties, or workplace. It is also the name the EPA has given to its campaign to help Americans conserve our water resources, and the label given to low-flow devices or fixtures whose specifications meet the standards of the EPA’s WaterSense program.
Building operators, property managers and real estate owners can take action by repairing or replacing inefficient equipment, fixing plumbing leaks, and instituting improved work processes to minimize water waste.

In fact, these measures are often offered free of charge to customers under utility energy efficiency programs, removing cost barriers to owner participation. (more…)
