Healthcare Energy Support
Improve facility energy performance and reduce costs
As 24/7 operations, healthcare facilities spend a significant percentage of their budgets on energy costs. However, these facilities often do not have comprehensive energy management systems and approaches in place. With the help of NYSERDA, healthcare facilities can integrate strategic energy management into their operations – allowing facilities to manage energy in a coordinated way that reduces costs and enhances overall building performance. NYSERDA offers free, 12-month energy support services for healthcare facilities interested in advancing a comprehensive, long-term energy management approach.
