Upper Chesapeake gets $1.5 million from BGE for hospital power plant

The new tri-generation plant at University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air got a big boost this week from a Baltimore Gas & Electric program to save energy.

Harford County's central hospital received $1.5 million in incentives from BGE's Smart Energy Savers Program, the energy company announced this week.

The combined heat-and-power energy efficiency project is expected to save Upper Chesapeake $9 million over 20 years and generate about 13 million kilowatt hours annually, according to a BGE statement.

The new plant, which has been operational since mid-July, runs on natural gas, hospital facilities director Don Allik said.
