The Waste Not program performed energy audits of four wastewater facilities in New  Mexico. The City of Espanola, the Town of Taos, the City of Tucumcari and the Village of Ruidoso participated in this program. This proactive long-range program worked to significantly reduce wastewater utility costs by applying energy benchmarking, modern software tools, energy efficiency or renewable energy. This three year program has now ended as of June 2019. The communities have taken the energy audits that were performed and implemented portions of the proposed solutions.
