Wind Energy for Hospitals – Inerjy Vertical Axis Wind Turbines
When hospitals are consuming Mega Watts of dirty energy they are contributing to the health risks of their community. When asked about Boston’s Partners Healthcare impact on the city, John Messervy, director of capital and facility planning at Partners said,
“We use as much power as the 100,000 residents of the city of Cambridge.Fifty-two percent of that power is generated using fossil fuels. So, we have a large environmental footprint and we are looking more closely at what we can do to reduce it, and what we can do to be more responsible than we already are in reducing our impact on the environment and contributing to chronic disease.”
Wind energy for hospitals is a great addition to a health network’s sustainability efforts because an EcoVert™ Wind Energy Turbine can easily be installed on a hospitals grounds. The EcoVert fits in a parking space, is as quiet as a refrigerator, and its modern design blends itself into most hospital’s exteriors. The EcoVert™ Wind Power Turbine can stand as a hospitals flag of sustainability and a dedication to the better health of its community.
Another great benefit to having an EcoVert™ Wind Energy Turbine on a hospital’s campus is the energy reliability. Having power for hospital is critical and though every hospital has generators, a wind turbine constantly contributing power can ease both patients and hospital staff that even if in the aftermath of a hurricane, the hospital will continue to have power.
