These projects also saved more than 11.6 million kwh of electricity annually. GreenShape’s projects use 30-90% less water than conventional buildings do for sewage conveyance, which has resulted in over 5.3 million gallons of water savings annually. This data does not include the resource conservation that will result from the support provided by GreenShape to more than 100 other projects for which data has not been confirmed.
