In a typical hospital, lighting, heating and hot water represent about 72% of total energy use, making those systems the best targets for energy savings. Putting energy efficiency plans into place for each of these systems is a good prescription to reduce operating costs while maintaining the comfort of patients and staff.
Programs and Incentives for Healthcare
The BGE Smart Energy Savers Program® offers a variety of energy efficiency programs and incentives that can help healthcare facilities cut costs. Incentives are available for such things as retrofitting lighting, adding personal occupancy sensors, installing new HVAC equipment, replacing chillers, performing building tune-up services on existing equipment and upgrading kitchen and refrigeration equipment.
