RA Centre - Phase I
1451 Riverside Drive – Ottawa, ON
Project cost of $210,000
Annual savings of $58,000
Serving Ottawa for over 75 years, the Recreation Association of the Public Service of Canada (the RA Centre) partnered with CoEnergy to take on the first phase of a comprehensive move towards energy efficiency and sustainability.
Working alongside Ottawa’s own Lightenco Inc., CoEnergy undertook complete LED upgrades to the RA Centre’s baseball diamonds, badminton and squash courts, as well as its curling rinks.
In addition to fully financing the project, CoEnergy worked with RA Centre staff to ensure the lighting upgrades were up to necessary standards for the various activities they illuminate.
CoEnergy was thrilled to work with the RA Centre given the critical service the non-profit recreational facility provides to the community. The leadership team and staff of the RA Centre are striving to reduce their carbon footprint every year.
Through their work with CoEnergy, the RA Centre was also granted membership to Carbon613, Ottawa’s green economy hub. CoEnergy is continuing to work with the RA Centre to help them achieve further energy savings and greenhouse gas reductions as the recreational facility hopes to continue growing in the coming years.
