AmericanDG Supplies Power to Healthcare Facility
AmericanDG (Waltham, MA) announced that it has signed an agreement with Greenpark Care Center in Brooklyn, NY, to supply energy for the 400-bed, long-term, healthcare facility through a distributed generation (DG) power system. Under the terms of the agreement, Greenpark will receive a substantial portion of its electricity and hot water directly from an on-site, 150kW cogeneration facility that will be installed and operated by AmericanDG.
"Our 30-year-old facility has been in dire need of a new energy solution," said Brian Glattstein, president of Greenpark Care Center. "And we are under tremendous pressure to keep our costs down in light of cuts in medical spending. So, a solution that promises to improve our energy efficiency and reduce our energy costs - with someone else taking full responsibility for maintaining and servicing the equipment - is obviously very appealing to us."
