Health Sector in Vanguard of Clean Energy Programs Targeting Health, Environment
(Herndon,VA)  In recent months, three U.S. hospitals signed energy contracts that will save over $1.7 million in energy costs, provide them with up to 10 percent clean energy. The green energy will avoid 11,829 metric tons of CO2 being released to our atmosphere, which is equivalent to taking 2,052 cars off the road or not burning 56 railcars’ worth of coal. Some of the human health benefits will include avoiding over 200 respiratory illnesses.  These hospitals are among the first participants in Practice Greenhealth’s Clean Energy Solutions program, established to help the U.S. health care sector switch to cleaner, renewable energy sources.
