With a focus on energy and water, Southface partners with nonprofits to identify areas where cost savings can occur. After completing the application and pre-assessment, the process begins with a facilities assessment that provides Southface with an understanding of how your building runs. Once energy and water baselines are created and recommendations made, Southface works hand-in-hand with each organization’s designated Green Champion to prioritize and implement improvements.

Set the thermostat on your water heater to 120°F. You can also insulate your hot-water storage tank and the first six feet of the hot and cold water pipes connected to the water heater. For long-term savings, on-demand natural gas or tankless water heaters can heat water directly without using a storage tank, which can save up to 30% compared with a standard natural gas storage tank water heater.
“Getting the assessment done; having someone come in and think more comprehensively was right on time for us. It makes you feel confident about your next steps.”
