Conserving Water Means Conserving Electricity

Energy Conservation

Aug 23, 2013  Comment

Water may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about using less electricity, but conserving water is a big step in conserving energy. Heating water in your home consumes a lot of energy, but it also takes a lot of energy for your municipality to pump, treat and distribute the water, and keep it from freezing in the winter.

There are many easy ways to save water. Yukoner David Black did extensive research into low-flow fixtures when he was building his new home and has been thrilled with the results. David will be talking about his research and experiences building a water smart house at our August Conversations in Conservation event. It takes place next Thursday (August 29th) from noon to 1pm at the Westmark Hotel in Whitehorse.

Conversations in Conservation is a monthly event hosted by Yukon Energy on the last Thursday of every month. All the events take place at the Westmark Hotel over the lunch hour. There is no cost and everyone is welcome. Cookies and refreshments will be served.
