Click here to read the Water Efficiency article that highlights Energy Systems Group (ESG) and the water meter improvements that ESG implemented for the City of Brooksville, Florida. Below is an excerpt from the article:
"Chris Summers, regional director with Energy Systems Group, says his company began replacing Brooksville’s meters in July of 2011. The company finished the project, including the upgrade of several of the city's larger meter stations, in October of that same year. By the time the project finished, Energy Systems Group workers had replaced every meter in Brooksville that had been installed before 2006.
“We replaced a variety of meters on this project,” says Summers. “Some meters dated back to the 1950s. Others came in during the early part of the housing boom. The bulk of the meters that we replaced, though, fell between 15 and 20 years in age.”
“A lot of cities, especially smaller cities, know the benefits of upgrading their meters and water equipment, but they lack the capital dollars to make infrastructure improvements,” says Summers. “With a performance contract, you guarantee the results for clients. They can improve their systems without worrying about how they are going to pay for the improvements.”
