As part of the MCCAC’s Recreation Energy Conservation (REC) program, the Town of Rocky Mountain House completed an installation of two 35 kW combined heat and power (CHP) units and installed two new 800,000 BTU boilers. The combined heat and power units generate electricity for onsite use while recovering heat from the generation process to be used for pool heating. Installation of these units will cut the facility-related emissions by roughly 25% and cut annual energy costs by roughly 40%.

The project was completed in September 2020.

“For heating the pools and building, powering ventilation, air conditioning, and lighting, we were paying over $100,000 per year in utilities. With the installation of the CHP and two high-efficiency boilers, we have cut that nearly in half. The CHP project is saving money and greenhouse gas emissions. Thank you to all of our partners for this important step forward for our community.”
