Energy Efficient Lighting at Virginia VA Hospital To Help Fund Additional Services
February 19, 2016 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
A $1.58 million project will renovate Virginia VA hospital with new energy efficient lighting, sensors and controls.
The funds saved by the new lighting system is expected to fund addition services for veterans.
The hospital’s inefficient legacy lighting will be replaced with almost 12,000 LED systems and sensors and other high-efficiency fixtures in office, exterior, and other applications.
Financed with a utility energy services contract, the project will not require any hospital operating funds to install the technology. The project helps meet several federal mandates and VA policies for sustainability to reduce energy consumption, promote healthy work environments and protect natural resources.
