Ministry Eagle River Memorial Hospital receives funding from WPPI Energy for reduction efforts
Ministry Eagle River Memorial Hospital was recently recognized by WPPI Energy with a check for costs to implement energy savings initiatives at the hospital.
An energy study was performed by Bob Collins of WPPI Energy and two projects were identified as needing upgrades to achieve efficiency gains in utility expenses. The projects focused on outdoor lighting and the humidification of the building.
The reimbursement to upgrade the two identified projects was 50 percent of the total cost.
“WPPI Energy and its member utilities work with customers to provide improved energy efficiency, reduction in energy use during periods of peak demand, improved systems performance, and greater comfort,” said Bob Collins, WPPI Energy.
“The Ministry Eagle River facilities team is always looking for ways to effectively and efficiently reduce energy costs,” said Tony Nedbal, Director of Ministry Howard Young Health Care Facilities Engineering. “By increasing the efficiency of building operations and reducing energy and utility costs, the savings will far outweigh the cost to implement these initiatives.”
WPPI Energy is a regional power company serving 51 customer-owned electric utilities. Through WPPI Energy, these public power utilities share resources and own generation facilities to provide reliable, affordable electricity to more than 190,000 homes and businesses in Wisconsin, Upper Michigan and Iowa.
