PHC Receives NYSERDA Grant
John Pardo, vice president of Operations, recently supervised the installation of a new chiller at the Peninsula Hospital Center. The installation was made possible by a $625,000 grant obtained through a New York State Energy Research and Development Authority Energy Efficient Project. The scope of the project included the custom design, purchase and installation of a new chiller unit to provide air conditioning to the Hospital Center. The new equipment will provide clean energy and a substantial annual source energy savings to the Hospital Center.
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority is funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) through the State Program. The Recovery Act provides qualifying applicants funding for investments to increase long-term economic efficiency, environmental protection and job creation, among other purposes.
“Peninsula Hospital Center is very pleased to have qualified for this type of infrastructure enhancement. It will prove to be energy efficient, environmentally sound and will provide clean, excellent and efficient air conditioning to the entire Hospital Center,” says John Pardo. “This new chiller will provide many benefits to our employees, our patients and to our visitors.”
