Vermillion hospital updates qualify for energy-efficiency rebates

Dakota Hospital Foundation/Sanford Hospital in Vermillion, S.D., recently received a Bright Energy Solutions® rebates totaling $16,709 for a new construction project.

As the hospital’s emergency, MRI, and examination rooms were being updated over the past eight months, the Foundation included the installation of LED lighting, variable frequency drives on cooling and air-handling equipment, and a new 110-ton chiller. These energy-efficient features qualified for the rebates.

Dakota Hospital Foundation plans to do more energy upgrades throughout this year in older portions of the hospital.

Bright Energy Solutions is a portfolio of energy-efficiency cash-incentive programs designed to help residential and business customers of municipal utilities that are members of Missouri River Energy Services reduce their electric energy costs and operate more efficiently.
