Water Agency Receives ‘Flex Your Power’ Honors

The city of San Diego’s water department has won a Flex Your Power Award for its energy efficiency.

The department oversees a water conservation program that includes new policies and ordinances designed to promote water conservation, along with public information and education campaigns.

According to the department, the program has resulted in an annual savings of 30,000 acre-feet of potable water 13 percent of the city’s total water use, along with electricity savings, for an overall cost reduction of more than $190,000.

“The power of conserving water saves money on your water bill, conserves energy and helps the environment,” said Luis Generoso, water resources manager. “Although it’s quite a challenge, we strive to conserve an additional 700 acre-feet of water a year because it saves water and energy.”

Some 41 winners were selected from hundreds of applicants for outstanding leadership in energy efficiency.

The awards ceremony was scheduled for May 5 at the San Francisco Concourse Exhibition Center.
