If 18,000 households in Guelph move to using low-flow toilets, the community can save 1 Gigalitre of water per year.

1 Gigawatt-hour (GWh) is the amount of electricity needed to power 100 average households for 1 year.

If 67 homes in Guelph each save 15,000 kWhe (~1 GWhe) in natural gas and electricity per year, each household would reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 3.5 tonnes per year!
