In most places, average temperatures are rising. Scientists have observed a warming trend beginning around the late 1800s. The most rapid warming has occurred in recent decades. Many believe this rapid change is due to human activities.
reliance on non-renewable,
The cost of utilities (water, electricity and natural gas) is expensive and rising. The cost of electricity typically rises at a rate of approximately 6% every year! Over the last year, it has been closer to 15%!
How much does the VRMS spend on utilities (water, natural gas, electricity) in just one year?
That’s a lot!
What about the entire district in one year?
If we did nothing at all, that amount,
$155, 549.04, would increase by $9,333.00 per
Year at VRMS alone!
That equates to an average of $778.00 every
At the District level, the $4,610,084.52 total would increase by $276,605.00!
That would be over $23,000 per month!
Just to use the same amount you used last year!
The first step in reducing carbon footprint and saving money…
-Turn off all unnecessary electricity using devices
-Reduce VAMPIRE energy
-The average U.S. household spends $100 per year to power devices while they are off or in standby. In U.S. alone, it accounts for over 100 billion kWh and over $10 billion in annual energy costs!
-Understand “peak hours” 12 - 6
-Don’t let water run unnecessarily (state of emergency)
-Understand watering hours (2103 driest year on record)
Solar for the district would be upwards of $10 - $15 million dollars to produce approximately 20% of consumption.
This means we would be paying for solar AND still paying SoCal Edison!
A solar project will be viable only when conservation and efficiency measures are effective and sustainable and the “right deal” is available.
