Water scarcity is a growing concern across the country and making our houses more water efficient can save water, energy and money. Come and learn about a new tool — the Water Efficiency Rating Score (WERS) — that can be used to quantify water use in houses and to compare houses. Find out how some municipalities are looking at the tool as a way to cut water use and leverage both water and energy savings. How might your program incorporate the WERS tool into an audit and demonstrate savings for city and state water programs.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain what the WERS tool is and what it can do
  • Describe why municipalities are so interested in a tool that quantifies water savings
  • Describe ways your program might use the WERS tool
