FortisBC recognizes Island Health emission reductions with new boiler upgrade at Eagle Park Lodge

Mar 14, 2017

QUALICUM BEACH – Three new boilers at Eagle Park Lodge will save Island Health approximately $17,000 annually in costs, and will reduce enough greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to be equivalent to taking nine vehicles off the road.

“Island Health continues to be very progressive in managing their energy use, making them a great example of what can be achieved when industry, healthcare and government work together,” said Danielle Wensink, director, energy conservation and management, FortisBC. “They work closely with us to maximize incentives and energy savings, and reinvest those dollars in more upgrades and renewable natural gas which further reduces their overall energy footprint, even as their organization grows.”
