Drops of Energy: Conserving Urban Water in California to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions
This report identifies key obstacles to conserving water and recommends, among other things: the expansion of energy-efficiency funding programs, such as a public goods surcharge on water bills and on-bill financing to help water consumers pay for water efficiency improvements; and the implementation of rate structures that encourage and reward water use efficiency.
The recommendations are the result of a business and climate change workshop convened by the UCLA and UC Berkeley Law schools. Participants included water experts, public officials, academics, environmentalists and business leaders.
