UGI Presents Energy Efficiency Check to Misericordia University
14 Sep 2020
UGI presented a $100,000 Energy Efficiency and Conservation (EE&C) rebate check to Misericordia University for energy efficiency improvements made during the renovation and expansion of the University’s Frank M. and Dorothea Henry Science Center.
Misericordia received the rebate through the Custom Program provision of UGI’s Gas EE&C Program. As part of the Henry Science Center construction project, the University installed high-efficiency natural gas boilers and water heaters, as well as upgrading the facility’s insulation. The Henry Science Center is being built to LEED Silver efficiency standards.
As a result of these measures, Misericordia will save more than 28,000 CCF (hundred cubic feet) of natural gas each year.
“UGI is pleased to provide this check to Misericordia University,” Robert Stoyko, UGI vice president of marketing and customer relations, said. “Installation of innovative, energy efficiency technology at education facilities allows institutions to reduce operating costs while improving the environment by reducing their carbon footprint.”
The UGI Gas EE&C program is designed to achieve lower energy usage and reduced overall costs for customers. The program is available to both residential and commercial customers. UGI also offers an Electric EE&C program for electric service customers.
