Energy Smart delivers energy and cost savings for Allina Health

Allina Health - St. Francis Healthy Preventative Maintenance

As a member of the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, Allina Health and Energy Smart have teamed up as part of their Green Teams initiative. The first step - get the portfolio of facilities benchmarked to evaluate priority buildings and complete energy consultations. In 2022, Energy Smart completed 10 consultations with Allina Health. Often, these facilities manage a tight ship when it comes to operations and maintenance and have already captured the low-hanging fruit of energy efficiency projects. Energy Smart adds value as an extension of the Allina Health team by identifying projects for which rebates were not applied.


The St. Francis location has several boilers to serve their facility and regularly performs preventative maintenance, such as tuning up the boilers to optimize combustion efficiency and avoid unpredictable system shutdowns. This project is eligible for utility rebates every other year.

According to Suzanne Savanick Hansen, Allina Health Sustainability Manager, “Reducing our energy use is the most cost-effective way to reach our energy efficiency and climate goals. Energy Smart helps us identify additional energy-reduction initiatives while saving money through rebates.”
