March 22, 2017 - Mackenzie Health, a hospital serving the residents of the Regional Municipality of York Region in Ontario, was presented with a cheque in the amount of $127,314 and a Certificate of Achievement from Alectra Utilities earlier this week.
The presentation recognized the heath-care facility’s recent switch to 100% LED lighting through the utility’s Retrofit program. Mackenzie Health is the first hospital in Alectra’s service territory to change over to 100 per cent LED lighting, the utility notes.
By converting the entire hospital to LED lighting, Mackenzie Health will reduce its annual consumption by about 1,536,744 kWh, Alectra says, and annual energy costs by approximately $210,000. The company adds that the savings will be equivalent to removing 180 homes off the grid.
“As Canada’s largest municipally-owned electricity distribution company, we recognize the importance of assisting our customers in finding solutions to help them better manage their energy costs”, said Raegan Bond, vice-president, Conservation Demand Management, Alectra Utilities. “Our team of experts can help customers navigate through the retrofit process and realize the incentives available through the Save On Energy Retrofit program.”
