On September 19th, Metrus’ $5.8 million retrofit project at Kuakini Medical Center was commissioned. The company’s largest ESA project to date is now operational and delivering significant economic and environmental value to the hospital. The project—which was completed on time and on budget—will annually reduce CO2 emissions by 2,956 tons, save 3.5 million kilowatt-hours of electricity, and 10,800 therms of natural gas while saving Kuakini $1.1 million in annual utility expenses.
Energy Industries constructed the project and will now provide ongoing maintenance and equipment monitoring services to Kuakini that are paid for under Metrus’ ESA.
Metrus will continue to work with Kuakini and Energy Industries to ensure that energy savings are delivered and that new energy efficiency measures that emerge over time are incorporated into this project.
