West Nipissing General Hospital in Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, will receive more than $2 million under the Hospital Energy Efficiency Program to use more renewable energy technologies, according to an article on the Nugget website.

Altogether, the North East Local Health Integration Network will receive $7.4 million for 20 energy-efficiency projects.

The program is an initiative of the Climate Change Action Plan and uses proceeds from Ontario’s carbon market to modernize facilities such as hospitals, universities and heritage buildings.
