Greenhouse gas emissions reductions for this project are calculated based on Alberta’s Carbon Offset Emission Factors Handbook Version 3.1


As part of the Electric Vehicles for Municipalities program the Town of Nanton purchased new fully electric Olympia Model E ice resurfacer. The Town received a $47,700 rebate for the project to help cover the $159,000.00 purchase price.

This project was funded by the Government of Alberta.


The new electric ice resurfacer will replace an outdated 10-year-old propane fueled ice resurfacer. The Olympia will be used within the Tom Hornecker Recreation Centre.


The purchase of the new electric ice resurfacer not only contributes to environmental sustainability but also offers economic benefits by reducing maintenance costs. The Town can expect:

  • Lower operating costs as electric ice resurfacers are substantially more efficient compared to propane powered units.
  • Lower maintenance costs as electric ice resurfacers have fewer moving parts.
  • Reduced GHG emission as electric ice resurfacers do not produce any GHG emissions during operation.
  • Improved indoor air quality as no exhaust will be produced during operation.

“The Tom Hornecker Recreation Centre is an important hub in the community of Nanton and the addition of this new ice resurfacer is an innovative solution that will help to reduce energy costs and provide better air quality for all users of the facility”
