The benefits of solar energy for all kinds of medical facilities go way beyond the bottom line. Clean, reliable energy can contribute to the overall health and well-being of people in the community and help healthcare facilities fulfill their mission of saving and improving lives.
Healthcare facilities across the country are dealing with ever-tightening budgets. Adding affordable solar energy into the mix can help virtually any medical facility reduce their overall energy expenditures, allowing them to redirect funds into critical patient-care functions.
Having reliable, affordable backup power is a must for today’s highly computerized and digital medical facilities. And while most facilities are equipped with emergency backup generators, stored solar energy is a much cleaner and more dependable source of crucial backup power.
The burning of oil, coal, and gas has a negative impact on people’s health. Replacing fossil fuels with clean, renewable solar energy would provide for a healthier environment, healthier population, and a reduction in healthcare costs.
Most healthcare facilities are facing pressure to increase the use of renewable energy and meet sustainability goals. Again, replacing fossil-fuel generated power with solar power can help meet those goals.
