Health Sciences North receives over $277,000 for Energy Conservation Upgrades!
Health Sciences North has been quietly upgrading energy-thirsty equipment, replacing lights, motors and system controls over the past 2-and-a-half years. Those changes will save HSN over $500k annually on electricity, money that can be redirected to help people who really need help…the patients. And with the help of Greater Sudbury Hydro’s EnergySavers team, HSN has received over $277k in Save One Energy incentives to help pay for those upgrades.
“Health Sciences North is a leader in energy efficiency and sets an example for everyone in our community. Energy retrofits are one of the most important actions that a homeowner, business, school or hospital can undertake to reduce their monthly costs,’
Glen Thibeault, Minister of Energy for Ontario
Glen Thibeault, Minister of Energy for Ontario , who was on hand for the cheque presentation. “That’s why Ontario’s government and local hydro utilities have launched new incentives and supports to undertake energy retrofits through the Save on Energy program. I applaud HSN for putting patients first with these investments, as well as Greater Sudbury Hydro for helping everyone in our city save money by saving energy.”
HSN has participated in both Retrofit and Energy Audit Programs. The Retrofit Program provides incentives of up to 50% of the cost of installing new energy-efficient equipment such as lighting, motors, and compressors. The Energy Audit Program covers up to 50% of the cost of an energy audit to identify opportunities to save energy costs.
