Two recent hospital energy efficiency upgrades are predicted to pay for themselves in improved energy costs.
Hospitals in Canada are using Honeywell for a combined $11.3 million in energy savings and facility renewal programs.
Cambridge Memorial Hospital in Ontario is using a $2 million energy efficiency and facility upgrade program to add a SolarWall air heating system, as well as reducing its environmental footprint to save about $163,000 in utility costs annually.
At St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton in Ontario, a $9.3-million energy retrofit and renewal program combines energy-efficient upgrades with building enhancements. Combined, the programs are expected to save the hospital $1 million annually at its Charlton and Stoney Creek campuses.
In addition to the work at the hospitals, Honeywell is working with the entral Dauphin School District in Harrisburg, Pa., on an $8.2-million energy efficiency and conservation program.
The school’s program will utilize traditional facility retrofits as well as upgraded buildings to reduce its environmental footprint and save nearly $1.1 million in annual utility costs.
