Electricity made from conventional sources, especially nuclear and coal, requires a lot of water. Plus, it takes quite a bit of energy to collect, treat and distribute clean water. We call this the “energy-water nexus.”
Electricity made from wind energy, on the other hand, doesn’t use any water to produce.
We recognize that there’s a bigger picture when it comes to protecting the environment. Water, transportation and waste all contribute to your carbon footprint in addition to energy. Because of the water-energy nexus, water seemed like the obvious choice once we start looking at other ways to help our customers live more sustainably.
