Ryders’ Mystic Healthcare Deploys Solar

Ryders Health Management, a family-owned management company for independent skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers, announced the completion of a 317 kW rooftop solar installation at Ryders’ Mystic Healthcare Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Mystic, Connecticut.

The rooftop solar system will offset up to 95% of the facility’s annual energy consumption with emissions-free power.

Budderfly, a sustainability partner for businesses, upgraded and installed energy-efficient technologies at Ryders’ Mystic Healthcare facility in 2018 to reduce energy consumption and waste. 

The company also provided ongoing measurement, monitoring, and maintenance, resulting in energy cost savings of over $100,000 to date. 

“Ryders is committed to providing the highest quality care to patients within our facilities. The sustainability projects we’ve completed with Budderfly are not only beneficial to the environment, but positively impact the comfort of our staff and patients, from bright LED lighting and high efficiency HVAC systems,” said Martin Sbriglio, RN, DHL, CEO of Ryder’s Health Management, in a statement. “Of the approximately 230 skilled nursing facilities in Connecticut, Mystic Healthcare is one of the first skilled nursing facilities to be majority solar powered. We’re proud of this accomplishment and hope to set a new standard for the industry.”

Budderfly’s energy-as-a-service program was used at Ryders’ Lord Chamberlain and Cheshire House facilities. Across the three Ryders locations, Budderfly’s energy solutions mitigated 933 metric tons of carbon emissions.

The company plans to expand their partnership to service all seven Ryders locations.
