Prairie North Health Region boosts energy efficiency

June 25, 2013

Prairie North Health Region (PNHR) has completed a $3.5 million contract with SaskPower to make energy efficient upgrades to its healthcare facilities in northwest Saskatchewan.

The Health Region anticipates savings of nearly $300,000 annually in utility costs once all upgrades are made through the Energy Performance Contracting program. This includes an annual savings of more than $135,000 in electricity costs, approximately $80,000 in natural gas costs, approximately $67,000 in water costs, and the rest of the savings realized through operational efficiencies.

The system enhancements will also reduce carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 1,500 tonnes each year.

"With the province's increasing need for power, programs like this are an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to help our customers improve the energy efficiency of their operations and help us better manage our growing electricity needs," said Robert Watson, CEO and President at SaskPower.

"This program is a great opportunity for Prairie North," says PNHR Chief Executive Officer David Fan. "The cost savings that come from the upgrades are guaranteed to the organization, and we're able to lessen the environmental impact of our many buildings."

The project was carried out through SaskPower's Energy Performance Contracting program, in partnership with Honeywell. The service provides energy audits and facility upgrades to help SaskPower's commercial customers reduce their energy coxsts.

The Energy Performance Contracting program has been serving SaskPower's commercial customers for over a decade and has completed or initiated projects at 252 facilities across the province, including schools, commercial buildings, government and health facilities, and SaskPower's own buildings. With this project, $66.7 million in projects will combine for annual customer utility savings of more than $5.8 million, and save 36 million kilowatt hours of electricity each year.
