Lower Your Water Bills With AUS Energy
Nov 11, 2020

We at Alternative Utility Services (AUS) have been helping our clients cut costs on their electricity and natural gas expenses for many years.  But recently, we’ve started to help our clients save a LOT of money on their water and sewer bills, too.

The new Chicago water/sewer tax has increased the amount buildings and multifamily properties are paying on their water bills.  That is why we put together a “Water Conservation and Leak Detection Program” to help these properties identify where they are losing money with water – and how to lower those bills fast.

And the program has been hugely successful.  

One example: 

We have a client on the north-side of Chicago:  A 220-unit condominium association property.  We implemented a water-leak detection solution there in February. 

In each billing cycle since the solution was put into place, this client is using over 1,000,000 gallons LESS than they used during the same billing cycles the previous year. 

On their last water bill, they used 18,833 gallons a day LESS than the same period last year. 

Here is the best part:  The entire solution was put into place with no money upfront by our client – it is paid for out of their monthly savings. 

That water bill from your local municipality every 2 months has no details about when water was used, or (worse) whether or not there are any existing leaks.

Even more troublesome is that by the time you get each water bill, the water use it shows is what happened more than 8 weeks earlier!

AUS has successfully tested the water usage of numerous properties during the past several months, and what we discovered was quite shocking:

Many properties had substantial amounts of water flowing during the middle of the night – and they never even knew it was happening (we’ve seen as much as 6,000,000 gallons a year leaking from multifamily properties).

AUS can stop these leaks, and put a LOT more money back into your pockets.

In Chicago, the cost of water has tripled in just the last 10 years. 

Would you like to know how much water you use by month, week, day, hour or minute?

Or perhaps receive an alert on your cell phone if there is a sudden increase in the amount of water flowing in your pipes?

How about the ability to monitor the water usage at your property or portfolio of properties from an easy to use “dashboard”?

That technology isn’t science fiction – it exists right now.  Best of all, it costs less than a cup of coffee a day.
