The program continues to be developed under the tutelage of several industry stakeholders and has already been used within the State of New Mexico for over 3 years. Additionally, The Coalition has worked with Santa Fe Community College to offer a training program for use of the WERS program, verification procedures, and certification. Finally, four manufacturers have partnered with WERS to offer discounts on water-efficient products: Evolve Technologies, EcoVie, Flow-Know®, and Pearl’s Premium.
“We’re very proud of the WERS,” said Green Builder® Coalition Executive Director Mike Collignon. “We’re also interested in collaborating with municipalities who have a need or interest in conserving water. The WERS program can be valuable to those communities as either an incentive or regulation.“
