N.C. hospital recognized for energy savings

Improvements have the hospital on track to save $125,000 on utilities this year


Carolinas Healthcare System Lincoln hospital was one of four in North Carolina chosen to pilot a CHS initiative aimed at reducing, by 2017, its energy-use intensity by 20 percent from 2012, according to an article on the Lincoln Times-News website. 

Those improvements have the hospital on track to save $125,000 on utilities this year.

The hospital asked its employees to carry out five simple actions. They were required to turn off lights and televisions when not in use, shut down computer monitors, reset thermostats and close window blinds.

The American Society of Healthcare Engineering recognized CHS-Lincoln and four other hospitals for realizing energy consumption reduction greater than 10 percent for one year.
