    Kingston General Hospital in Ontario spent $10 million and five years upgrading the hospital’s energy systems and the project is already saving large amounts of energy, according to an article on The Whig website.
    The project included a major retrofit to the hospital infrastructure in  that to reduce energy costs and improve the efficiency of buildings. A second energy project began in 2013.
    “These projects combined have netted us over $800,000 in energy and water savings and reduced our carbon footprint by over 14 percent,” Allan McLuskie, director of facilities, said.
    Capital costs were reduced through grants of $500,000 from Ontario’s saveONenergy retrofit program, which encourages businesses and institutions to install energy-efficient solutions to cut their energy use.
    “These incentives have helped us to save over 3.5 million kWh in energy per year, making us one of the most energy-efficient acute care hospitals in the country,” McLuskie said.
