OUR SMART SERVICES
Envirosmart Solutions Group (ESG) is here to analyze information and program effectiveness, and to propose new ideas based on extensive research. Whether it’s a home or small business, we can assess conservation potential and provide a detailed report on your current resource usage, suggest changes to your use and offer recommendations.
ESG offers the following water conservation programs: commercial, industrial and institutional (CII) water use audits; water use benchmarking and budgeting; and gallons per capital per day (GPCD) analyses and evaluations. These programs are designed to help customers save water and money by providing a detailed report of current water use, inventory of current water-using fixtures, recommendations on high-efficient water fixtures and local rebate and incentive programs. Agencies also benefit from these programs to help reach their water conservation goals.
ESG provides energy efficiency analyses for residential and small commercial facilities through its auditing program. This entails a trained professional visiting the customer’s home or small business in order to assess energy conservation potential. A detailed report is then created for the customer, which includes current energy usage, recommendations on changes that may help curb or lower high-energy use habits and guidelines on energy-efficient products based on rebates and incentives offered by local utility providers.
ESG can analyze existing programs to discover their effectiveness. Various factors are considered to ensure the target audience is receiving the intended benefit and services. This type of evaluation is especially important when it comes to rebate programs in both the water and energy industries. ESG also looks at saturation rates and product use, which is vital information for funding source requirements.
Over the years, ESG has assisted many cities and agencies with their water and energy efficiency programs by providing analyses, research, audit and evaluation services.

ESG is contracted by San Diego County Water Authority to evaluate its water-use efficiency programs to improve administrative services, monitor water savings, meet grant funding requirements, and ensure programs and initiatives adapt to changing conditions.

ESG has been awarded a contract by Metropolitan Water District of Southern California to provide information about the different types of water end-use devices residents use in their homes. The study will also measure the amount of water each device uses per day and the daily amount of water use per capita. Traditionally, water use surveys are conducted to collect this data, but for this particular project, ESG will be using data loggers to collect actual water use at each home. ESG's team of consultants are expected to complete the project by 2021.
ESG has assembled a dedicated team of experts with a wide range of specialties to provide the best possible service for its customers. From experienced engineers to seasoned analysts, ESG’s global network is ready to meet and exceed expectations.
