(NYSE: POM  ) and a leader in energy savings performance contracting, has been selected to implement a comprehensive energy savings performance contract project for Sarah Bush Lincoln Health System (SBLHS) in Mattoon, Ill.

Pepco Energy will install more than $3 million in new energy conservation measures and infrastructure for twelve buildings which include a hospital, medical centers, office buildings and clinics. The project will include exterior LED lighting retrofits, building automation system upgrades, water conservation measures, steam system improvements, ventilation system retrofits and building envelope sealing.

Overall this project will reduce the amount of CO2 produced by 4.4 million lbs. per year or the equivalent of planting more than 630 acres of trees.
