The cure for aging equipment and high energy costs is closer than you might think.

How to leverage the energy savings in your facility to upgrade equipment and improve sustainability, efficiency, and resilience

Hospitals and clinics must constantly contend with a long list of mission-critical spending priorities. While improving energy performance may not be at the top of every list, the savings that can be achieved through an energy efficiency retrofit can deliver a range of benefits, from improved sustainability and operational resilience to a more comfortable patient experience. In fact, a study by the EPA found that, in nonprofit healthcare organizations, each dollar of energy savings is the equivalent of up to $20 in new revenue.

Metrus leverages the energy savings found within your built environment through a turnkey solution with zero upfront cost.

Main benefits:

Metrus funds 100% of the project cost.

You get new, upgraded equipment for $0 upfront — an off-balance-sheet solution that preserves your CapEx budget for other needs.

We manage the retrofit from beginning to end.

Accelerate decarbonization and your progress toward net zero without worrying about project implementation.

We own and maintain the equipment.

You pay only for a portion of the realized energy savings while reaping the benefits of improved resilience, lowered energy use, and reduced GHG emissions.

Improve sustainability and your facilities with no CapEx impact


By removing the cost and complexities of an efficiency retrofit, Metrus fast-tracks your decarbonization efforts. Bundling different types of improvements into one project allows you to scale and accelerate your sustainability goals by offsetting the payback period of big-ticket items like boilers with faster-payback equipment like LED lighting. Regular performance reporting provides shareable insights into the progress being made.

Operations and facilities

We install state-of-the-art equipment and technologies—chosen to meet your unique needs—to make your healthcare facility more resilient, efficient, and comfortable. And because we provide maintenance and monitor performance over the life of the partnership, you’re assured of maximum savings and operational reliability.


Our Energy as a Service model is a true off-balance-sheet solution that enables building and equipment upgrades while preserving your debt capacity and CapEx budget for other priorities. The improvements we install generate budgetary savings from day one.

Get started with a remote energy audit

The first step in a retrofit project is our free remote energy audit, an easy, three-step process that reveals where your greatest savings can be achieved (click the button at the top of the page to get started):

  1. Complete a short form that allows Metrus to evaluate your current infrastructure, energy consumption, and utility cost.
  2. Have a phone consultation with Metrus to ask questions.
  3. We’ll recommend equipment upgrades and energy and water efficiency measures and estimate the budgetary savings.
