Description

BayREN Water Upgrades Save is a turnkey water efficiency program for Bay Area municipal water utilities that helps water infrastructure adapt to the climate impacts of drought and wildfire risk. The program offers a new solution for local governments that enables water customers to reduce their water and sewer costs, water utilities to manage existing demand and minimize new supply and infrastructure costs, and local governments to ensure all citizens have access to affordable efficiency services. Pilot programs reduced multifamily and single-family home water use by over 20%, and official regional and municipal utility enrollment began in 2021.
