I never get why anyone would think that a water supplier cares about people reducing water usage.

It's like when electricity companies try to give you a free energy-saving bulb. The cost of that bulb is spent in about a day by the average household. And why would they want you to cut consumption while they are charging you FOR that consumption.

It's entirely the wrong way to go about it. The company who wants your business isn't going to be bothered about you using more of their products and paying them more money.

If you want to reduce electricity usage, you put up the tax on the energy supply. Problem solved. (And other problems introduced).
