Partnership Programs

Water conservation program partnerships can take many forms, but usually involve two or more utilities or organizations that share a common goal and/or common service territory. There are many motivations to form a partnership including: reducing program costs; providing consistency in functions across adjacent service territories; shared conservation goals; eliminating duplicative efforts; purchasing at volume discounts; enhanced offerings to customers; and cost-sharing. Partnerships usually require more initial effort to form the needed agreements, but can yield great benefits over time.
