Hospital CHP Plant Generates 13 Million kWh Per Year
The University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health Medical Center unveiled its new combined heat and power (CHP) plant, which is located on site at the medical campus in Bel Air, Md.
Baltimore Gas and Electric’s (BGE’s) Smart Energy Savers Program is helping the university manage its energy use through BGE’s Combined Heat and Power Program. Upper Chesapeake Health is the first recipient of installation incentives from BGE’s Smart Energy Savers Program, receiving $1.5 million in incentives (pictured).
Overall, the completed combined heat and power energy efficiency project is expected to save Upper Chesapeake Health $9 million over 20 years and will generate about 13 million kWh annually.
The BGE Smart Energy Savers Program offers financial incentives and technical assistance to BGE customers in an effort to promote energy efficiency throughout Maryland. The program supports the EmPOWER Maryland Energy Efficiency Act and offers energy-saving solutions for renters, homeowners, large and small business customers, nonprofits and institutional customers.
