TOTOâ€™s EcoPower technology harnesses the kinetic power of flowing water to power its electronics, creating a stand-alone sustainable loop that does not require hard wiring or the use of disposable batteries, reducing toxic batter waste. EcoPower successfully combines hands-free operation, low maintenance, easy installation, and sustainability. These sensor faucets are ideal for high-traffic commercial spaces, providing an elegant water conservation solution or LEED option. Integrated EcoPower Faucet In response to market demand and an excellent example of TOTOâ€™s People-First Innovation design philosophy, the companyâ€™s engineers developed the Integrated EcoPower Faucet. Innovative features include temperature and operational controls above the counter for optimum user interface. The EcoPower faucet sensor eye is angled down into the lavatory bowl, so water is discharged only when hands are actually placed in the sensorâ€™s path. Water flow stops almost immediately when the hands are removed, conserving water. Joining TOTOâ€™s other WaterSense certified, the new EcoPower Integrated Faucet is a High-Efficiency Faucet that consumes a mere 0.15 gallons per 10-second cycle. This is a 40% reduction in water consumption below the base line of 0.25 gallons per cycle set by the Energy Policy Act of 1992 and a 25% reduction in water consumption below California Green Building Codesâ€™ baseline of 0.20 gallons per 10-cycle.
