Hospital System Tackles Energy Efficiency on a Large Scale

Trinity Health (Mount Carmel’s parent company) was searching for ways to reduce energy consumption across its entire system in an effort to be more environmentally responsible – but also benefit the company’s bottom line.

Mount Carmel earned a total of $202,027.44 in incentives from AEP Ohio and conserved over 2,500,000 kWh of electricity through the SelfDirect Program, an opportunity to retroactively earn incentives for prior energy efficiency projects, and the Prescriptive Program.

Measures implemented included airhandling unit controls, variable speed drives, replacement of thousands of T12 fluorescent lamps with high efficiency T8 lamps, installation of L.E.D. bulbs, replacement of exit signs, removal of a 500-ton chiller and more.
