Economic Stimulus Funding Will Help Increase Energy Efficiency of Williamsport Hospital
Date:5/28/2009

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa., May 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In a demonstration of federal recovery funds already at work conserving energy and creating jobs in Pennsylvania, Department of Environmental Protection Secretary John Hanger today helped celebrate the completion of the new energy service center at Susquehanna Health's Williamsport Hospital and Medical Center.

The event marked a milestone in Susquehanna Health's Project 2012, a multi-year, multi-million dollar expansion and modernization project.

"Improvements in energy efficiency must also keep pace with the increase in demand. We now look forward to the next step, the installation of a cogeneration system that will make this new facility even more energy efficient."

In March, Governor Rendell awarded Susquehanna Health a $1 million Pennsylvania Energy Development Authority grant to install a new, two-megawatt cogeneration system that will generate electricity and also capture and reuse waste heat to provide heat and hot water for the hospital. This project is one of the first in the state to receive funding through the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The system will generate more than 15 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year, equivalent to the energy used by more than 1,500 average homes. The project also created 35 jobs.

"This is an example of how we are putting the stimulus funds to work by implementing advanced energy measures and creating green collar jobs," said Hanger. "The federal funding presents us with opportunities to move forward shovel-ready projects that otherwise might have been left on the drawing board. This allows more projects to become a reality and produce multiple benefits for all Pennsylv
