New York healthcare provider Catholic Health has signed a two-year agreement with Constellation Energy that is expected to save the health system more than $500,000 annually in electricity costs.

The agreement includes a green power initiative, which will supply wind-generated energy for 10% of the electricity at Mercy Hospital of Buffalo, Kenmore Mercy Hospital, Sisters of Charity Hospital, Sisters of Charity Hospital, St. Joseph Campus, four Catholic Health nursing and adult homes and its Nazareth Campus. The facilities use more than 58 million kWh of electricity annually.

"The contract was a great opportunity for us to make a positive impact by purchasing wind-generated power, which will help lower our use of fossil fuel," says Joseph D. McDonald, president and CEO of Catholic Health. "Our system has made a commitment to finding ways to reduce our carbon footprint. Using wind power to help run our facilities is a step in the right direction."
