TOM LEE/FAIRFAX NZ Waikato District Health Board operations manager Mike FitzPatrick says energy savings have a flow-on effect.

 

An overhaul of Waikato Hospital’s Waiora Building is reaping major energy savings.

New high performance chillers have been installed and, together with other initiatives, have slashed $167,000 off the hospital’s power bill.

The new chillers were purchased via a $278,600 Crown loan accessed through the Energy Electricity and Conservation Authority (EECA). The loan has to be paid back within five years.
