The Port Moody Recreation Centre was originally built in 1970 and 1972, and is the largest single user of energy in the city. After implementing a Life Cycle Costing Analysis, the city decided to retrofit the existing building with new lighting and HVAC systems.
The city’s retrofit saves it $28,000 annually in energy costs, provides residents with a healthier place to exercise, and showcases energy saving techniques to an entire community. T8 fluorescent fixtures with electronic ballasts and transparent tube shields were used.
The building boasts a 26% electrical energy reduction and an 18% gas reduction annually.
