As part of the MCCAC’s Recreation Energy Conservation (REC) program, the Town of Hanna completed a lighting retrofit at Centennial Place, updating 165 existing lamps to LED equivalents. The project was completed in June 2021.
The Centennial Place lighting retrofit project included the replacement of 165 fluorescent T5s, T8s, and halogens to 154 LED highbays, troffers, downlights, and strip fixtures. The LED lamps will provide higher lumen levels at a much lower wattage, thereby reducing the electricity consumption of lighting equipment under the system boundary. In addition, there were 11 fixtures that were permanently decommissioned due to the retrofit.
Due to the brighter LEDs lower wattage, the Centennial Place retrofit project resulted in a 43% reduction in the facility’s lighting energy use. This retrofit is estimated to save 19 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year, equating to a 12% reduction in the facility’s carbon footprint.
Here’s what Colin Derko, Mayor of the Village of Boyle had to say about the project and participating in the Recreation Energy Conservation Program:
“The new LED lighting is a great improvement for our players. Good job to all involved. Our players found the old lights provided a glare and the new lights are just great!”Jay Slemp, Hanna Pickleball Club
