As part of the MCCAC’s Recreation Energy Conservation (REC) program, the Village of Boyle completed a lighting retrofit of the Boyle Arena at the Millview Recreation Complex, updating 179 existing lamps to LED equivalents. The project was completed in May 2021.


The Boyle Arena lighting retrofit project included the replacement of 179 T5s, T8s, T12s, and metal halide fixtures to 179 LED highbays, 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.


Due to the brighter LEDs lower wattage, the Boyle Arena retrofit project resulted in a 39% reduction in the facility’s lighting energy use. This retrofit is estimated to save 9 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year, equating to a 4% 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 Village of Boyle Staff and Council is very proud to take advantage of this valuable program in order enhance our community arena. It is because of great programs like the Municipal Climate Change Action Center (MCCAC) that communities around Alberta are able to do our part to be better stewards of our environment.”
