Saint Elizabeth Home East Greenwich, R.I..

Nonprofit charitable organization that provides a full spectrum of quality care to older and physically disabled adults.

In its capacity as a National Grid Project Expeditor, RISE conducted a free assessment of Saint Elizabeth Home’s exterior lighting and mechanical systems to identify recommended energy-efficiency measures, which included upgrading the lighting fixtures and installing variable frequency drives (VFDs) and controls, kitchen ventilation system controls, and vending machine controls. These measures resulted in a projected $35,000 in annual energy savings.



Reduce the energy costs and improve the energy efficiency of Saint Elizabeth Home while enhancing the facility’s exterior lighting quality and the performance of its mechanical systems.
