Orlando, FL – February 28, 2012 – Dr. P. Phillips Hospital has been recognized in the Kilowatt Crackdown Challenge by the Central Florida Energy Efficiency Alliance (CFEEA). The hospital, an Energy Star partner, saved more than 950,000 kilowatt hours last year by retrofitting the lighting systems in its parking garages and implementing lighting changes in the main hospital building. This green initiative has meant a 5-10% reduction in energy expense for the hospital.
Dr. P. Phillips Hospital was among seven companies recognized by the CFEEA that combined contributed to a reduction of 26,414 metric tons of CO2 greenhouse gas emission in Central Florida. The CFEEA was established in July 2009 to provide a unified voice for professional and trade organizations, local government, academia, and utilities that are committed to research, education and implementation of environmentally and socially responsible energy and building management practices that conserve energy and natural resources. CFEEA sponsors challenges, events, training, workshops, awards, and free resources to help businesses and government entities in Central Florida save money and become more sustainable.
