Multi Family Success Stories

Westdale Success Story

AWES completed a water conservation retrofit for Westdale Asset Management on a 300 unit complex in Atlanta, GA. Monthly savings to date have averaged 49%. The actual monthly average savings is coming in at just over $20,000. At this rate of savings, the retrofit is scheduled to pay for itself in just under seven months and an average annual savings of $240 K translates into $2.4 MM of increased value at a 10% cap rate.

"In 2008, we purchased a property that was a water hog using over 2 million gallons a month. With the city of Atlanta having one of the most expensive water rates in the country and with more increases to come, we had to do something. AWES came in, identified the problem, and offered a cost effective solution to reduce our monthly water bill. Since the installation, we have saved over 4.3 million gallons of water and approximately $72k in the first three months. At this rate, our payback will be less than 12 months! Because of the success of this one property, AWES in now looking at all of our properties in Atlanta."
