Solar Array Covers 90 Percent Of Healthcare Facility’s Energy Needs

October 26, 2020

A 461-kilowatt rooftop solar installation at Konica Minolta Healthcare’s headquarters in Wayne, N.J., will generate an estimated 541,645 kWh of clean energy annually, equivalent to matching nearly 90% of the facility’s onsite electricity usage, according to an article on the Solar Power World website.

Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, a medical imaging and information technology company, is a division of Konica Minolta, a member company of RE100 that plans to generate 100 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2050, with a more immediate goal of 30 percent by 2030. 

The company has a sustainability strategy that includes innovating green products and making its global operations more environmentally friendly. This solar project is Konica Minolta Healthcare’s latest step towards sustainability.

More healthcare facilities have turned to solar power to save energy costs. A year into using solar panels, for instance, the CentraState Medical Center in Highland, Fla., saw a $300,000 reduction in energy costs, according to an HealthTech article.  

Many healthcare organizations like CentraState are finding ways to reduce their energy consumption and costs by deploying technologies to improve efficiency.

Tools that manage energy use can alert administrators when anomalies occur so they can be proactive in repairing or replacing equipment.
