Western Health Completes Energy-Efficient Upgrades

On Thursday Western Health announced the completion of the construction phase of a $5.8-million energy saving and facility renewal program with Honeywell.

It will encompass 12 buildings throughout the region.

Western Health says that the program is expected to reduce utility bills by $374,000 per year, representing 10.3% of electricity and oil costs.

Western Health will use the energy savings the program produces to pay for the work.

This will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 523 metric tons per year, the equivalent of removing approximately 175 medium-sized cars from the road, according to Environment Canada.
