Local grant promotes Providence’s stewardship of environment and resources
“Puget Sound Energy recently awarded Providence St. Peter Hospital a grant totaling $458,343.23 as part of their grant conservation program. This program helped the hospital to afford the cost of a system designed to recycle the boiler heat that would otherwise vent into the atmosphere. The otherwise wasted energy is now being used to heat part of the hospital and provide hot water.
Reducing the reliance on natural gas, the heating source we currently use, reduces our carbon footprint. This project is estimated to save the hospital about $60,000 in natural gas costs per year,” quoting Providence Health & Services.
