To reduce life-cycle costs, curb building emissions, and achieve critical goals outlined in the Climate Smart plan, the city council of San Jose, Calif. recently voted to adopt an energy and water building performance ordinance. Beginning May 1, 2019, owners of existing commercial and multifamily buildings over 20,000 square feet in size will be required to benchmark and report energy and water use.
“While benchmarking may seem like a frivolous and time consuming process, building owners actually have much to gain beyond ordinance compliance. says Aaron Beasley, Vice President of WaterSignal. “With the help of a smart water monitoring system like WaterSignal, building owners can take advantage of rebates and incentive programs offered by state and local water providers, reduce operating expenses, and ultimately, ensure compliance.”
Using a non-invasive device, WaterSignal measures water flow in real time and wirelessly sends the data to an easy to use dashboard. From there, building owners are able to monitor usage, compare against other buildings and even analyze consumption by hour. The WaterSignal system also features customizable alerts in the event of a leak or anomaly.
“Taking water management one step further, we also provide thorough water audits that pinpoint inefficiencies, and offer best practices and products to reduce consumption” says Beasley.
WaterSignal is a recognized innovator in water conservation due to its real time water monitoring and leak detection system. Leveraging over two decades of engineering expertise, WaterSignal monitors domestic meters, irrigation systems, and cooling towers for residential, commercial, multifamily, senior living, medical, schools and colleges. WaterSignal’s intelligent, non-invasive device accurately measures water usage and reports the data in real time to a secure dashboard. While dramatically reducing water costs and footprint, WaterSignal saves valuable time and provides unique insight on our most precious resource, water.
