November 27, 2017 - Through the just-announced Hospital Energy Efficiency Program, Ontario is investing in hospitals to improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gases and redirect savings into patient care across the province.
“Hospitals across Ontario are important partners in reducing energy use,” said John Fraser, MPP, parliamentary assistant to the minister of Health & Long-Term Care. “By taking practical steps to lower our energy consumption, we benefit the health of our economy, environment and families.”
This year, the province is funding 180 projects at 98 hospitals, including 117 HVAC, 35 lighting and 28 others that address other energy efficiency needs at hospitals to the tune of $64 million. By 2020-21, the government estimates over $60 million will be generated in energy-related savings annually.
The program will use proceeds from Ontario’s carbon market.
