FEATURE

Centerville City's
Strategies for
Energy Efficiency

e

BY RANDY RANDALL AND MIKE SMITH, CENTERVILLE CITY, UTAH

Editor's Note:
In September 2016, Centerville, Utah was
presented with the NRWA Excellence in Energy
Efficiency Award at the WaterPro Conference
in Orlando, Florida. The Awards Committee, in
making the presentation, said, "Centerville City is
changing the way things are done! They recognized
the potential and need for energy conservation and
savings on their system and went to work to make
the change necessary. Their innovation practically
and literally "wrote the book" on water system
energy savings. By implementing energy efficiency
and water-saving strategies, they realized a savings
of over $262,000 per year in energy, water and
power costs!"
The president of the Rural Water Association of
Utah (RWAU), Rick Wixom said, "Centerville City
has taken energy efficiency seriously; to a point
that they have built a scale model of their system
to provide training to employees and demonstrate
to their city council the importance of the water
system to the community. Not only are they able to
provide efficiency in energy, but the project includes
redundancy upon redundancy, especially in their
emergency management planning. The old days of
running a water system is over. New techniques
now provide reductions in energy cost savings that
can be used to hire addition system employees."
Dale Pierson, executive director of RWAU,

echoed Wixom's remarks: "Dedicated employees
have worked many hours and evaluated numerous
components to make the system be as efficient
as possible. Centerville is an example to the water
community for their dedication of efficiency in water
system operations."

SECOND QUARTER 2017

Every water system has individual characteristics and challenges
that impede efficiency. Resourceful water operators can find opportunities
to save money by understanding power-rate schedules. Knowing what a
power company is trying to accomplish with its rate structures may allow
water operators to increase efficiency and redundancy while decreasing
their actual costs.
