Water-related energy use accounts for more than 19% of the state’s total electricity use, including treating, pumping, and conveying water to your home, heating the water for your shower and washing machine, and treating the waste water that leaves your home. This connection is especially strong in the summer when demands for energy and water are the highest.
Saving water can help your water and wastewater utilities reduce the amount of water that must be pumped and treated – saving energy and money. Reducing the amount of water you use can reduce your energy usage.
