Green Light New Orleans financial benefit

Calculation of financial benefits:

Water Bill

1700 gallons of water = $ 38.23

1 gallon of water = $ 0.0225

50 gallon rain barrel: $ 1.12

 

How much water do I collect?

Volume of water in cubic feet = Area of rainfall in square feet x rainfall in inches x 1/12 inches to feet conversion x 7.48052 cubic feet to gallon conversion

For example:
1300 sqft roof
1.25 inches of rain

1300 x 1.25 x 1/12 x 7.48052 = 1012 Gallons
