Align Capital Partners is closing its sixth strategic add-on for its utility market intelligence, data science and consulting platform, E Source. Water Systems Optimization (“WSO”) offers water loss reduction analytics, leak simulation models, consulting and program management services to utilities and municipalities throughout the United States.

Headquartered in Nashville, TN, WSO partners with national, state and local water agencies to reduce water loss and optimize much needed investments. The WSO team is comprised of experts in water loss research, analysis, strategy, related field work and capital investments to address losses. WSO will become part of E Source’s Technology Planning and Implementation business unit which currently focuses on the areas of advanced metering infrastructure, smart grid/water and smart city initiatives.

ACP acquired E Source in June of 2019 and will continue to invest in strategic add-ons to broaden the Company’s offering of tech-enabled, customer-first solutions to help utilities effectively manage the customer and infrastructure sides of their business reliably, efficiently, safely and sustainably.
