Michael Garron Hospital in Toronto, Canada, was awarded close to $200,000 in incentive funding from the municipal electricity distribution company for achieving excellent energy savings, according to an article on the Inside Toronto website.
Toronto Hydro recognized the healthcare facility for contributing to Ontario’s conservation targets with its new, upgraded cooling tower system.
The new patient care tower will be constructed to comply with LEED silver certification standards.
LEED-certified buildings must meet minimum standards in five areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.
