Seattle healthcare facility installing large solar array

December 20, 2017

Harborview Medical Center in Seattle is installing an almost 100-kilowatt solar array. The installation is the largest of its kind installed on a Washington hospital, according to an article on the Health Facilities Management website.

The solar array will help to offset the energy needs and provide emergency backup power for the facility.

"This solar project will help us meet our carbon-reduction goals, create redundant power for the West Hospital in case of an emergency and demonstrate the feasibility of solar power on health care facilities," Pam Jorgensen, assistant administrator of facilities and engineering at Harborview, said in the article.

In addition to the solar installation, the hospital’s roof is being replaced and insulation added.
