As part of the Action Centre’s Recreation Energy Conservation Program, the Town of Redwater completed an LED lighting retrofit throughout Pembina Place. Constructed in 1975, Pembina Place is a 67,564 ft2 multi-facility complex including an arena, a curling rink, a cultural hall, a fitness centre, dressing rooms, a golf court and a lounge. The project was commissioned in September 2021.
The Pembina Place lighting retrofit project included the replacement of metal halides (45 in total), with 45 new LED high bays and low bays. 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.
The lighting retrofit resulted in a reduction of 13 tCO2/year and an annual energy cost saving of $2,873.37 thus decreasing electricity costs. There is a 52% GHG reduction from the existing system and a 2% reduction facility-wide from the baseline.
“Spectators and users of Pembina Place’s arena will enjoy increased visibility and in turn increased safety for both users, visitors, and facility operations. The new lighting also includes wireless switches with dimming capability. The upgrades will reduce Pembina Place’s environmental impacts and the overall expense of the facility”Mayor Dave McRae
The new High Bay LED lighting fixtures at Pembina Place give the arena a whole new exciting look. Assistance from the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre (MCCAC) under the Recreation Energy Conservation Program made them affordable. Our community will definitely benefit from this retrofit.”Garnet Davison, Community Services Manager
