BSPA health care facility gets generator upgrade - (29-01-2023)

Living in an area of the country that experiences various types of severe weather, including thunderstorms, high winds, ice and snow, having access to power during an outage is important year round.

“That is especially true for vulnerable populations like our Sisters residing in our health care facility,” said Kelley Baldwin, director of communications for the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration.

The congregation recently replaced the building’s generator with a new diesel model, upgrading from 60 kilowatts to 300 kW, which was possible due to the help of generous donors.

“The old generator for Our Lady of Rickenbach was in excellent condition, despite being more than 20 years old, but didn’t provide enough power to the complex,” Baldwin added. “The new generator will support more systems within the building to keep Sisters and staff safe in the event of an outage.”
