Hospitals shifting to renewable energy

November 14, 2014

A growing number of health systems are moving from fossil-fuel to green energy from renewable, non-polluting, non-carbon sources such as wind, solar and hydroelectric projects that have a low environmental impact, according to an article on the Modern Healthcare website. 

When health systems contract for renewable energy, it supports the production of the green energy that is added to the overall energy supply.

According to the article, tips for buying energy from renewable resources include:

• Hire a consultant that specializes in renewable energy. The issues involved can be too complicated for internal staff. 

• If possible, partner with other organizations in your market to pool your renewable energy purchase. 

• Be prepared to consider the financial benefits of renewable energy purchases over a longer period of time than for conventional energy sources
