ECOSYSTEMS TO EXHIBIT AT 2019 NATIONAL APARTMENT ASSOCIATION’S, APARTMENTALIZE, ALONGSIDE DENVER WATER

EcoSystems announces today the firm will exhibit at the National Apartment Association (NAA) trade show, Apartmentalize, in Denver, CO from June 26-28. Ecosystems, a company founded and operated by two brothers determined to combat global water scarcity and water shortages, will be exhibiting alongside Denver Water this year at booth #1665.

Known for its proven turnkey installation processes and dedication to conserving water and energy, EcoSystems has completed over 70,000 bathroom retrofits to date, saving more than 2 billion gallons of fresh water and $15 million in utility costs. By upgrading showerheads, toilets, aerators, and LED lighting, the company offers speedy, money-saving solutions to property owners. Typically, EcoSystems is able to eliminate  30-65 percent cost on sewer and water bills within 18 months of the retrofit. 

Denver Water and EcoSystems announced their partnership  in January, 2018, following the completion of the utility’s largest toilet rebate to date. For qualifying Denver Water customers, EcoSystems offers a free water and energy conservation audits and a retrofit/repair program for low income and non-profit patrons.

Apartmentalize provides a unique experience for apartment industry professionals to come together and listen to keynote speakers, network and learn from different exhibitor booths. Each year, the show attracts 10,000 attendees and over 500 exhibitors. 

“We’re excited to be exhibiting with our partner, Denver Water at NAA’s Apartmentalize this June,” said Richard Lamondin, Jr., CEO of EcoSystems. “With Denver Water, we have been able to make such a positive impact in their community by not only saving 33 million gallons of water and $225,000, but also by bringing these solutions to those who can benefit from them the most. This is the type of partnership we want to continue to do for other communities in the United States to spread the word of our mission and hopefully educate prospective  partners about how conservation is good for business.”

A growing trend in the industry, multifamily borrowers can commit to renovations to reduce energy or water consumption as a trade-off for lower or fixed interest rates. The demand increase for these Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac green loans has forced savings requirements to go up the past three years. With the help of EcoSystems, properties can meet these standards and qualify for these reduced loans.

“Becoming more water efficient is really the right thing to do in Colorado with our semi-arid climate,” said Gianna Lombardi, Community Relations Specialist of Denver Water. “The water savings we’ve seen from the efficiency programs with EcoSystems has saved our low-income customers money on their water bills while helping us conserve our water supply.”
