Showing off Sullivan County Community Hospital's EECBG project

Of all of the places in need of ensuring that temperatures are appropriate and conditions are comfortable, a hospital is certainly at the top of the list.  Certain environmental conditions are often essential to keeping patients stabilized and in good health.  Thus, when the Sullivan County Hospital applied for one of our grants, we were happy to help.  

The Sullivan County Hospital used grant funds to take several measures that would create a more secure and relaxing environment for patients and staff.  First, the hospital installed a Pulse Condensing Boiler that reaches up to 97.5% efficiency. Secondly, they put in a Heat-Timer Mini-Mod-CN control system as an accompaniment to the boiler. And finally, the hospital finished it all off with natural gas and hydronic piping installation.  Estimated energy savings to date (the project was completed in December of 2010) was a  total 40,790 MMBTU. Those are some great savings!

Sullivan County Community Hospital received an Energy Efficiency & Conservation Block Grant (EECBG), a program of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009.  EECBG is funded through the U.S. Department of Energy and is administered by the Indiana Office of Energy Development.
