This webinar will introduce (or re-introduce) you to the Water Efficiency Rating Score (WERS). What does it analyze? Can WERS verifications be conducted while also doing an energy rating or green verification work? Can WERS be used in conjunction with other programs? Is this something remodelers and builders can utilize? Can WERS help shape policy? Can it help you book a hotel room? The applicability of WERS is wider than you might think, though it cannot help you book a hotel room.
