St. Joseph’s Hospital- North
SSR was contracted by BayCare Health Systems to conduct a Continuous Commissioning® assessment, implementation, and ongoing monitoring based commissioning for St. Joseph’s Hospital-North. The purpose of the assessment was to evaluate the operational efficiency of the existing HVAC and lighting systems, identify deferred maintenance items that may be impacting overall operational efficiency, identify cost-effective energy savings opportunities designed to resolve operating problems, improve comfort, reduce energy use, and identify potential retrofits or capital-intensive projects for future consideration.
When reviewing the total estimated energy cost savings for May 2015 through the end of August 2023 for electric and natural gas, the savings come to $1,659,015. In total, approximately 32% of the cumulative savings comes from electricity and 68% comes from natural gas.
Total GHG savings during the entire Continuous Commissioning process have been 14,929 Mt CO2e. This cumulative total reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is equivalent to removing 3,143 cars from the road for a year, or powering 1,361 fewer homes for a year, or sending 80 fewer railcars of coal to a power plant.
