'Topping Out' Ceremony Marks Milestone in Construction of University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro
Date:12/3/2009

upport some of the approximately $60 million in green initiatives that PHCS has planned for the new hospital. The hospital's major "green" technology features are:

  • Cogeneration Plant - The hospital will be powered by a 4.6 megawatt natural gas-fired cogeneration plant, developed in partnership with NRG Energy, Inc., a Princeton based wholesale power generation company. By producing electricity and heat from a single-fuel source, cogeneration is up to twice as efficient as a traditional electric generation system that produces heat and power separately.
  • Solar Shading - The exterior of the patient tower will be clad with a large system of sun-shielding exterior louvers allowing for the building to benefit from expansive windows providing 90 percent of interior spaces with natural light, while shielding the interior from the sun's heat and saving on cooling costs.
  • Solar Power - Known as solar groves, the solar cells convert sunlight directly into electricity. The 15 panels placed over a portion of the hospital's parking lot will produce energy equivalent to what would be needed to power 30 average sized single family homes. Developed in partnership with NRG Energy.
  • Thermal Energy Storage - By producing and storing chilled water at night, and using it to cool the hospital when needed, the hospital removes thousands of kilowatt hours of demand from the power grid during periods of peak demand, as well as reduces energy costs.

The funding from PSE&G comes from the utility's new Hospital Efficiency Program, which is available for new construction and retrofit projects at facilities in PSE&G's service territory.

"These investments will enable hospitals and medical centers install energy efficiency measures so that they can focus on their critical function of saving lives," said Al Matos, PSE&G's vice president for renewables and energy solutions. "The Pri
