Hydrostat exists to help customers reduce their financial and environmental costs of water and energy.
For example, Hydrostat is an authorised distributor of the Waterguard System. Waterguard is a device which delivers three complementary elements:
- Offering web-based access to half-hourly water consumption data from your sites.
- Restricting the flow of water at certain times, e.g. overnight and weekends, to reduce the impact of minor leaks and wasted water.
- Minimising the risk of flooding from burst pipes by monitoring and managing the flow of water.
As one of the founders of Hydrostat, Ashley Baxter can bring the following experience and expertise to customers:
- Reducing overall water consumption of Nottingham City Council by 25% (saving £300,000 per annum)
- Reducing energy consumption at Gala Coral Group by 10m kWh per annum (saving £1m)
- Introducing new technologies and smarter ways of working to reduce energy and water bills
- Over a decade of working within local government and the NHS.
In these times of financial austerity Hydrostat realises it isn’t easy to find funding, even for invest-to-save projects. For this reason Hydrostat is flexible in its business model. Customers can choose to pay either fixed charges for goods and services, or alternatively Hydrostat will take actions with no upfront charges, but will accept a share of the savings from the actions taken. The latter model might be attractive as a no-risk option.
