08 Jan District floats proposal to reduce greenhouse gases
‘We’re quite excited,’ facilities manager says of ‘carbon-neutral’ ideas for Brennan Park in Squamish, BC
Three Brennan Park Recreation Centre projects proposed for the 2016 budget could help the district reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by almost 30 tonnes per year. All three projects relate to upgrading gas-fired equipment at the centre. One involves replacing the arena’s hot water tank with a new system called REALice, which uses cold water.
“All the other rinks in B.C. and Canada that have used this have raved about it,” said Say, adding the new system also creates a better ice surface.
