LEI proposed an ASHRAE Level I / Level II energy audit of the 214,000 ft² Central Vermont Medical Center facility concurrent with a general facility and utility assessment, all culminating in the development of an Energy Master Plan. The Hospital enthusiastically embraced the proposal and hired our firm to get it done. Everyone likes the bottom line, so our lead document in the Energy Master Plan was our conservative estimate of energy savings and payback for the first round of conservation and energy improvements. They were, and continue to be excited about the potential improvements and energy savings.  

“After providing us with a comprehensive energy assessment and audit of our facilities, they did an excellent job developing our Energy Master Plan.  Their recommendations will bring significant energy savings to the hospital.”

At the time of the audit, the hospital's EPA Energy Star Portfolio Manager percentile rating was 26, which was 49 percentile points less than required to achieve the Energy Star Certification for a health care facility. After several years of hard work by a dedicated team, the hospital reached 75 percentile and was awarded the Energy Star Certification. This increase represented a 28% reduction in overall energy use. The hospital's current score is 85 percentile.
