  • How To Move The Needle Of Energy Consumption
    How To Move The Needle Of Energy Consumption

    Summer is here, and with it rising temperatures and energy costs.  In recent weeks, political unrest in Iraq has caused fuel prices to climb to near record highs, and no relief is in sight. Future-minded water utilities realize any decision made today to help offset future energy consumption is both economically and environmentally wise. With that in mind, utilities across the country are desperately searching for green products and innovations to help them conserve precious resources in the future, and iron pipe is one tool that can help them accomplish this.
