Energy conservation in Jackson Hole has recently focused on St. John’s Health to improve efficiency there. Energy Conservation Works is an ongoing partner with St. John’s Health in their effort to optimize efficiency in their operations, reduce costs, and enact energy efficiency and conservation measures.
ECW has worked with St. John’s Health to secure Teton County Energy Mitigation Program funds and Town of Jackson SPET funds to support efforts to evaluate and implement energy conservation and energy efficiency improvements in their facilities and install electric vehicle charging stations at their Main Campus.
The investment of matching SPET, EMP, and St. John’s Health Operational Funds, will net a full facility energy audit, installation and commissioning of operating room heating and ventilation setback controls, and the installation of two public-access electric vehicle charging stations.
The efficiency upgrades are slated to reduce 140,000 kWh annually, and the EV charging will support employees’ and patients’ use of zero emission electric vehicles. The audit provides facility-wide recommendations for further conservation and a better understanding internally among St John’s staff on their energy use.
