North Chicago Veterans Affairs Medical Center

Looking to improve energy service and cut costs across their 40-building campus, North Chicago VA Medical Center partnered with our team to develop a full-service on-site energy center. This energy center now provides secure electricity and steam to the VA hospital and Navy training facilities, enhancing the campus's self-sufficiency and reducing risk of disruption to hospital services.

The North Chicago VA Medical Center now has a reliable and secure on-site energy center meeting all campus electricity and steam needs. This enhances the VA's energy self-sufficiency and provides revenue from sales to non-VA customers, while ensuring energy supply to support the VA hospital's mission.
