The energy saving works completed by energy saving consultants, Leisure Energy included installation of solar panels, pool covers and plant room insulation. The works were all part of a commitment made by Freedom Leisure upon the renewal of its management contract in March 2018.
This work was really important to both us and the Council, as it greatly reduces the impact of this important community leisure facility on the environment and helps to see this centre into the future.Matt James- Centre Manager
The energy measures installed range from replacement pool covers to renewable solar thermal panels which are anticipated to save 280,000 kWh of gas every year, about the same as 23 houses. On top of this, the site will receive renewable heat incentive payments from the government. This means the project will pay for itself in about 5 years.
