“The board of directors at The Club at North Halton understood the benefits and impact of switching to energy-efficient lighting,” said Louis Violo of Power Quest. “Not only for the environmental impact, but a direct impact on the hydro savings to their bottom line.”
The Club undertook a retrofit of its interior lighting systems, reducing its electrical consumption by around 190 MWh, with a payback of 1.4 years.
“When we commenced planning the renovation project of our locker rooms, we had major thoughts of lighting updates for environmental responsibility, cost benefits and aesthetics,” noted Kyle Stewart, The Club’s general manager. “With the saveONenergy program in place and a great return on investment, we decided to go energy-efficient and update the whole facility’s lighting.”
The funding came from the utility via the Ontario Power Authority (OPA). “We encourage all of our customers to participate in the saveONenergy programs,” encouraged Art Skidmore, Halton Hills Hydro president CEO.
