SVMC Named as Efficiency Vermont 'Energy Leader'

BENNINGTON, Vt. — Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC), part of Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC), has been named as an "Energy Leader" by Efficiency Vermont. 
The organization honored seven large commercial and industrial customers with the award at the end of last year.
"SVMC's investment in energy efficiency and commitment to lowering energy use, operational costs, and greenhouse gas emissions is a testament their forward thinking and leadership," said Dave Adams, senior customer engagement manager at Efficiency Vermont. "We're grateful for the opportunity to support them with technical advice and incentives."
SVMC upgraded 50 percent of its control systems to achieve a greater command over ventilation, saving almost 500,000 kWh from the upgrade and building commissioning. SVMC has also taken steps to reduce its carbon footprint, recently completing a comprehensive pipe insulation project and a steam trap audit and repair initiative. These efforts will result in a reduction of almost 575,000 pounds of carbon emissions per year.
