From 2014-2018, retrofits were undertaken at Hospital Workers Co-operative to improve the energy efficiency of the building. This case study describes the energy efficiency retrofits that achieved major reductions in utility costs and carbon emissions for this 132-apartment building.
The retrofit at Hospital Workers Co-op demonstrated that retrofits can provide a compelling return on investment while reducing environmental impacts and generating green jobs. Some of our key results:
- $82,888 annual utility cost savings
- 157 tCO2eq emissions savings annually
- 37 per cent reduction in domestic hot water gas use
