The City of Mansfield entered a new era of energy management and cost control by engaging the team at 5 and exiting a large aggregation approach. They were hesitant at first to go out on their own but quickly found that they were joined by a robust team of engineers, analysts and client service reps through their new relationship with 5. The results also speak for themselves, over $9M in cost reductions through procurement and over $100k in savings each year through operational changes and tweaks throughout their water treatment facilities.
