Project Description

Windsor Elms Village is a non-profit, 108-bed Long Term Care Facility constructed in 2011 in Falmouth, Nova Scotia. The initiative to improve energy efficiency and deploy renewable energy at Windsor Elms Village was intended to serve as a role model to other healthcare facilities while aligning with the environmental goals of the Municipality of West Hants.

A ground-mounted Solar PV system and Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) were installed to help reduce peak electricity demand costs while ensuring sensitive medical equipment maintains power continuity and is protected from sudden power interruptions. Since the BESS system provides temporary back-up power via stored renewable energy, Windsor Elms Village was also able to reduce generator diesel fuel usage during power grid outages.

Improvements to the HVAC, building controls, and lighting systems improved overall energy efficiency, reducing ongoing maintenance costs. Additionally, significant non-energy benefits realized included improved lighting levels, reduced humidity, balanced temperature control, and resident comfort.

Combined with the comprehensive efficiency measures implemented, renewable energy storage provides Winsdor Elms Village with ongoing operational cost savings, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, energy security, and better facility resiliency.
