Water Consumption & Cost in Primary Schools in Johannesburg 2021

One of the main effects of COVID-19 in schools in 2020 and 2021 has been the reduction of revenue stream events. This, coupled with many parents being unable to pay schools fees, has created severe budgetary constraints for schools. Schools must therefore look to reduce their cost, with one obvious cost centre being utility electricity and water costs.

This article focuses on the Consumption and Cost of Water in Primary Schools in Johannesburg, based on Municipal Invoices.

From the graph detailed above, the monthly average water (KL) consumption based on Municipal Invoices in 2021, vary between 304 KL to 470 KL, and a total annual consumption of 4,599 KL, at a present annual cost (2021) of R370,000 (Johannesburg).

Reference primary schools that Suntricity has collaborated with over the last years, having installed AquaStop™ and having implemented many efficiency measures, indicate that water consumption of a primary school in Johannesburg, should consume no more than 2,500 KL per annum.

Therefore, if water consumption at your school is higher than 2,500 KL per annum, significant savings can be achieved.
