“Ameresco is pleased to work with UMC on a project that will have long-term benefits for the hospital, patients, residents and visitors to the region,” said Robert Georgeoff, vice president at Ameresco. “Currently, our teams are working closely with the hospital to coordinate installation without adversely affecting the patients or staff in the hospital. We look forward to delivering a successful project.”With Ameresco implementing these energy conservation measures, UMC is expected to reduce its carbon footprint by over 600 metric tons of CO2 annually. The reduction is equivalent to removing 118 cars from the road or powering 161 homes with clean, renewable energy per year. Additional benefits of Ameresco’s energy conservation measures include reducing UMC’s operation and maintenance costs by over $28,000 annually, as well as the potential to receive a rebate of over $65,000 from NV Energy’s incentive program. In addition to its work with UMC, Ameresco has a solid track record of energy efficiency projects with hospitals and healthcare facilities located throughout North America. Because hospitals and healthcare facilities typically use more than twice as much energy per square foot as office buildings, these facilities are usually good candidates for energy efficiency upgrades and retrofits. As part of a budget-neutral ESPC, Ameresco can modernize a single facility or provide comprehensive campus-wide energy management systems, built from best-in-class energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions and financed entirely with future savings from energy conservation.
