As part of the Action Centre’s Recreation Energy Conservation Program, the Town of Sedgewick completed an LED lighting retrofit at Wild Rose Co-op Recreation Centre. The Recreation Centre is a 63,409 ft² building constructed in 1992 that includes a curling rink, skating rink, bowling alley, meeting room, library, and playschool.   

The project was commissioned in September 2021.


The Wild Rose Co-op Recreation Centre lighting retrofit project included the replacement of 289 T8s, T12s, and metal halides to 299 new LED troffers, wall packs, and linear 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.


The lighting retrofit resulted in a reduction of 24 tCO2/year and an annual energy cost saving of $2,582.89 thus decreasing electricity costs. There is a 50% GHG reduction from the existing system and a 7% reduction facility-wide from the baseline.

The implementation of this project cut the GHG emissions associated with lighting by 50% from the previous baseline system.

“The Town of Sedgewick takes great pride in its recreation facility and part of ensuring its longevity is increasing efficiencies through partnerships such as this with the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre. LED lights create a brighter and safer facility and also reduce the annual facility costs, which helps keep fees low and reserve funds for other projects that benefit the community.”

Perry Robinson, Mayor, Town of Sedgewick
