Simpson House chooses energy management company
Life plan community Simpson House is working with ENER-G Rudox Inc. in conjunction with their partners and clean energy specialists Blue Sky Power and MCFA Global to design a sustainable makeover of its community.
The Philadelphia community will use infrastructure improvements on the campus that includes a ER265UL tri-generation system for heat, cooling, and electricity for the community. The project, estimated to be in the multimillion-dollar range, will include comprehensive lighting upgrades and the replacement of existing boilers and chillers.
“Historically, we've found that many senior living communities do not prioritize energy infrastructure upgrades because of economic concerns,” said Blue Sky Power CEO Ben Parvey. “It turns out, however, that many communities can actually reduce their carbon footprint and save money simultaneously, if they have the right approach.
Under the terms of the contract, Simpson House will receive approximately $350,000 in guaranteed energy savings each calendar year, while reducing the community's carbon footprint by approximately 300 metric tons per year.
