Healthcare Facilities

Managing energy consumption and the associated costs is becoming increasingly important to healthcare facilities. First and foremost, it is about creating the best possible environment for employees and patients. Technological advancements in LED lighting and significant private and public incentives for sustainability initiatives have made lighting infrastructure changes an exceptionally effective way for healthcare facilities to save on energy costs. Typical lighting costs for hospitals represents an average of 44% of the electricity bill, however by converting to LED a majority of that percentage can be saved.
