William Osler Health System facility delivers energy savings equal to taking 367 homes off the grid
BRAMPTON, ON, June 28, 2017 – Alectra Utilities’ Conservation team is proud to have collaborated with William Osler Health System in the design of its new facility resulting in energy savings of 3,233,587 kilowatt hours (kWh) per year and electrical demand savings of 856 kilowatts, an amount equal to removing 367 homes from the grid compared to a conventionally designed facility.
Through the Save on Energy (High Performance New Construction) program, the facility received an incentive of $523,696 for the project plus an additional $85,616.00 for the design requirements needed to achieve these goals.
The building has been designed with improved lighting power density, lighting controls, and high-efficiency HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) equipment, including air handlers with ERV (energy recovery ventilation) technology. These systems allow the building to perform substantially better than other comparable facilities in both electricity and gas usage.
Brampton families will be better served through this new 607,913 square foot integrated health and wellness centre specializing in health care services equipped with high-tech diagnostics that provides services in day surgery, urgent care, seniors’ rehabilitation and wellness services, women’s, children’s and adolescent care as well as mental health programs.
“Alectra is proud to recognize the William Osler Health System’s vision to create an energy-efficient facility that brings health services to the community through its new Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness,” said Mark Henderson, SVP, Energy Solutions & Services for Alectra Energy Solutions. “We are pleased to have assisted in this with the incentives available through the Save on Energy (High Performance New Construction) program.”
