Indication of management commitment (e.g., energy efficiency standard operating procedures; 
board/executive management energy efficiency policy, including quantitative goals developed 
and shared with stakeholders)  


Energy audit/benchmarking conducted to identify priorities for energy efficiency improvements  


‘Energy teams’ established and individuals empowered within the utility for energy efficiency 
activities (e.g., an “energy advocate” or “energy champion”)   


Energy management-related training provided to plant staff 


Utilization of energy conserving operational methods (e.g., optimization of primary 
sedimentation to reduce utilization of pure oxygen) 

Working to complete pricing contract negotiations with the Western Area Power Administration, which 
administers federal allocations of Boulder Canyon Project (Hoover Dam) hydropower, for Scottsdale 
Water’s hydropower capacity allocation of 2,366 kW per year (the second largest municipal allocation in 
Arizona). This significant renewable power allocation represents approximately 12.5 percent of the total 
energy used at the Water Campus Reclamation Facility, the Advanced Water Treatment Facility and the 
CAP Plant.
