DAYTON, Ohio -- Dayton Power & Light, a subsidiary of the AES Corporation awarded the Kettering Health Network an energy efficiency rebate of $200,700.80 for a project that upgraded the air conditioning system at the Kettering Medical Center campus.

The project, which was implemented by Siemens, installed a Demand Flow chilled water plant optimization control system that upgraded the air conditioning system’s control logic, installed high accuracy sensors and variable frequency drives, as well as other hardware to achieve the higher energy efficiencies.

As a result of the energy efficiency upgrade, the Kettering Health Network is expected to save 1,938,008 kWh a year and save $135,000 a year in electricity costs.

“Like DP&L, Kettering Health Network is called upon to deliver safe and reliable service to its customers 24/7. We are pleased to present Kettering Health Network with a rebate check recognizing their efforts towards increasing the energy efficiency of their buildings,” said DP&L President and CEO Derek A. Porter.

“We appreciate this generous rebate from DP&L,” said Roy Chew, President of Kettering Medical Center. “Our goal is to become more energy efficient throughout our hospital. We appreciate Siemens’ help in reaching one more milestone toward our goal.”

Kettering Health Network applied for the rebate in 2013. The system upgrade which controls four chillers with the capacity of 3,400 tons of cooling was completed in 2014. DP&L auditors collected data before and after the installation at the Kettering Medical Center campus on Southern Boulevard to determine the amount of savings and to verify the improvement in energy efficiency.
