Plug Smart is busy installing new mechanical systems at Naples Community Hospital (NCH) in Florida. As a 24/7 facility, mission-critical systems have to be replaced in a live switch, or without any shut-down period. Read on for updates on the first round of energy-saving projects which the hospital is investing millions in over a 5-year implementation period.
Findlay City Schools has just completed a significant $2.9 million upgrade to a number of school facilities. The project was enabled by a creative combination of grants, rebates, and self-funding energy efficiency upgrades developed through Columbus, Ohio energy firm Plug Smart. "We knew some of our building infrastructure systems like our boilers were reaching end-of-life conditions," states Findlay City Schools Maintenance Supervisor, Dennis Doolittle. "With potential major repairs in our future, we wanted to get ahead of the problems by exploring renovation programs with a number of energy firms. In the end, Plug Smart came back to us with a very creative program that enabled us to actually pay for the project through guaranteed energy savings."
The City of Middletown, Ohio has set up a commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) program, as the municipality just activated its Energy Special Improvement District (ESID) and chose Plug Smart to manage the program.
