Hospitals & Healthcare
Hospitals are the second most energy-intensive commercial space type in the United States, spending $8.8 billion on energy each year to meet patient needs. Hospitals and medical offices are finding that energy efficiency offers a way to reduce operating costs. Healthcare facilities that have implemented extensive energy-efficiency improvements have reduced energy use by 20 percent.
Every dollar that a non-profit healthcare organization saves on energy is equivalent to $20 in new revenues for hospitals or $10 for medical offices. Additionally, for-profit hospitals, medical offices and nursing homes can boost earnings per share by a penny by reducing energy costs just 5 percent. Investing in energy efficiency can not only preserve crucial funds, but the reduction in the energy load can dramatically extend power reliability during disasters and other emergencies. A high-performance healthcare facility also enhances your opportunity to improve market share, employee retention and philanthropic success.

Additional incentive opportunities
Operations & Maintenance Training incentive
Technical support and cash incentives are offered to owners and design teams for new construction, major renovation, and building addition projects.
Enhanced incentives are offered through the Small Business Program. If your building has a monthly demand of 100 kW or less over a twelve month period, you may be eligible for a Walk-Through Energy Assessment (WTEA) and enhanced incentives. The WTEA and the installation of low cost measures (up to $250) will be completed at no additional cost by a Small Business Trade Ally of your choice.
Businesses and institutions now have access to technical and financial resources to improve lighting, upgrade heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and controls systems and build high-performance buildings. Below is an example of a recently completed project at a local hospital. Pepco supported the project with advice early in the process and cash incentives after the upgrades were completed, helping the customer save money, improve comfort and boost productivity.
