Excela Latrobe Gets $50,000 Grant to Improve Energy Efficiency
This article published by the Tribune-Review focuses on Excela Health Latrobe Hospital in PA and a $50,000 grant from the West Penn Power Sustainable Energy Fund for energy efficiency. SkySpark will be a part of this project. Here’s a quote from the article:
“The grant will allow the hospital to install SkySpark analytics software that will monitor energy consumption trends over time, enabling the identification of abnormalities and consistently poor performance, the release said. Incorporating this software will assist our continuous improvement process and enable identification of new energy savings opportunities,” said Dan Robison Excela Health’s facilities director. “SkySpark is crucial to maintain and build upon Latrobe’s previous onsite energy savings of 18 percent.”
