Eversource Partners with Southern New Hampshire Health
August 2019

​In June, Eversource announced a partnership with Southern New Hampshire Health (SNHH) to modernize its acute care campus and off-site facilities with energy efficiency upgrades. The partnership, which will lessen the hospital’s energy and maintenance costs, will help to reduce carbon emissions while enhancing patient comfort. 

This comprehensive, three-year plan supports SNHH’s commitment to improving the health and well-being of the greater Nashua, N.H., community. 

“The savings Southern New Hampshire Health is achieving through energy efficiency directly impacts its bottom line, stimulating future growth and investments that enhance patient care services,” said Eversource Vice President of Energy Efficiency Tilak Subrahmanian. “We commend Southern New Hampshire Health for its holistic approach to enhancing the energy efficiency of its campus, and we look forward to our continued partnership to advance economic development and a clean energy future in the Granite State.”

As part of SNHH’s agreement with Eversource, the healthcare provider will receive technical assistance and engineering support to complete several planned upgrades, as well as incentives to offset the costs of installing new, energy-efficient equipment, including rooftop air units, supply air fans and fan walls, and heat pumps throughout its facilities. 

Additionally, energy efficiency will be an important consideration as SNHH plans to renovate its Digestive Health Center and to upgrade patient rooms in the coming years. A significant project to enhance air flow in SNHH’s main hospital already is underway. This upgrade will help reduce the facility’s electricity use by 30 percent, while maintaining the comfort of patients and employees.

“Our continued partnership with Eversource will support the sustainable growth of our campus in a way that puts the care of our patients first,” said SNHH Vice President of Facilities and Emergency Management Scott Cote. “The numerous upgrades we completed over the last several years with the support of Eversource’s energy efficiency programs have enhanced the reliability of our equipment, as well as services for our patients. Additionally, our investment in energy efficiency has reduced our operating and maintenance costs, which have been defrayed as our footprint and occupancy have grown.”

Eversource’s partnership with SNHH is just one example of the many ways our nation’s energy companies work with their communities to help them save energy and money.​
