(July 17, 2018) Shelbyville, IN--- Major Health Partners has announced that the new MHP Medical Center in S
helbyville, IN has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR® certification for superior energy performance.
On average, ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants use 35 percent less energy, cause 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and are less expensive to operate than their peers—all without sacrifices in performance or comfort.
ENERGY STAR certified buildings and plants are verified to perform in the top 25 percent of buildings nationwide, based on weather-normalized source energy use that takes into account occupancy, hours of operation, and other key metrics. ENERGY STAR is the only energy efficiency certification in the United States that is based on actual, verified energy performance.
“We’re honored to earn the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance for the MHP Medical Center. We truly appreciate the efforts of everyone who has been involved in its efficient design and operation,” said Jeff Williams, Vice President of Facility Operations. “Saving energy is just one of the ways we show our community we care, and that we’re committed to doing our part to protect the environment and public health, both today and for future generations.”
Williams credits this success to a number of energy efficiency measures designed and implemented into the new MHP Medical Center. Achieving an initial Energy Star Rating of 97 puts the MHP Medical Center as one of the top ten energy efficient hospitals in the Midwest. Williams credited CMTA Consulting Engineers for a highly energy efficient physical plant design. “Without CMTA’s unique engineering expertise in energy efficient design this award would not have been possible,” said Williams.
“Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s buildings is critical to protecting our environment, “said Jean Lupinacci, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Commercial & Industrial Branch. “From the boiler room to the board room, organizations are leading the way by making their buildings more efficient and earning EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification.” To date, tens of thousands of buildings and plants across all fifty states have earned the ENERGY STAR.
