Brace yourself, an increase of 50 percent in Los Angeles School District utility bills is around the corner.
The Los Angeles City Council approved the rates increase last year that will make the school system’s utility bill jump as much as $36 million over the next four years.
The School District has reduced their water consumption by 13 percent since 2014. Last year, schools in the Los Angeles area saved $3 million in utility cost by investing in water and energy efficient technologies.
This increase might sound excessive; however, local governments rely on these fees for operating and maintaining the utilities systems. Read more about why water rates increase here.
In the face of these soaring bills, commercial rebates can counteract the increased costs. For example, a couple of years ago, the Corona-Norco Unified School District, the fastest-growing school district in Southern California, found itself in a similar situation. School officials took advantage of these rebates to lower their water bills district-wide by installing Falcon/Sloan Waterfree urinals.
The maintenance personnel also discovered that Waterfree urinals simplified their daily routines and eliminated some of the headaches previously experienced with flush urinals. Ready to eliminate your calcite build up problems altogether? Great! Click here for more information.
