Energy efficient initiatives positively impact the environment and
reduce hospital's energy usage

The Dayton Power and Light Company (DP&L), a subsidiary of The AES
Corporation (NYSE:AES), today is recognizing Dayton Children's for
earning $283,393 in rebates through energy-saving measures that are
improving the environment and saving on energy costs. The efforts are
part of a broader corporate energy efficiency project based on new
construction at the Dayton Children's main campus and south campus in
Springboro.

Specific Programs and Energy Savings, include:

Main Campus Patient Tower

Lighting

  • The interior lighting system is predominantly ceiling recessed and
    suspended LED fixtures; energy-saving measures were used to maximize
    efficiency.
  • Occupancy sensors were placed throughout the facility.
  • Installation of LED exterior lighting.
  • The interior and exterior lighting savings accounts for 36% of the
    campus electricity savings.

HVAC

  • Installation of Geothermal technologies for heating and cooling.
  • The geothermal design allows for a very efficient operation system
    which accounts for 40% of the savings.

South Campus

  • The interior lighting system is a combination of ceiling recessed and
    suspended LED fixtures. Exterior lighting is also all LED.
    Energy-saving measures were used to maximize efficiency.
  • Overall, efficient lighting accounts for 28% of the campus electricity
    savings.

As a result of these energy efficiency new construction projects, Dayton
Children's is expected to save more than 2 million kWh annually which
accounts for a yearly cost savings of $184,685.

"Like DP&L, Dayton Children's Hospital works around the clock to serve
our community. DP&L is proud to partner with their management and
facilities team in helping them meet their energy efficiency goals and
