Hospital president Delia O’Connor said in a release that “becoming more energy efficient helps contain the cost of operating a hospital. It is also the right thing to do for the environment.”

O’Connor credits the support of National Grid, including its representatives Steve Szczechura and Fred Paine, and state Rep. Michael A. Costello, D-Newburyport, whose combined efforts helped bring clean energy to Anna Jaques, along with $235,000 in rebates. The purchase of energy-efficient boilers, chillers, automated systems and lighting qualified Anna Jaques for rebates from National Grid under the company’s energy initiatives and incentives program.

Costello said the effort is an example of how local businesses, government and nonprofits working together can make things happen for the community.
