A New Jersey utility is helping area hospitals save energy with upfront funding for a variety of energy-smart upgrades. Public Service Electric & Gas's energy-efficiency program made it possible for Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth to upgrade its heating and cooling plants, among other projects, according to an NJ Spotlight article.
Trinitas, a nonprofit hospital with two campuses, recently completed $3.7 million in energy efficiency upgrades to its facilities that will save it $390,000 annually and about $7.8 million over the 20-year lifespan of the new equipment.
PSE&G will spend $129 million to help New Jersey hospitals become more energy efficient, according to the article. The utility has completed projects at 22 hospitals with 10 more in progress and 20 facilities on a waiting list.
