at the Pool. A system that comprises of 196 panels used to convert the sun's radiation

into usable electricity, providing the Trust with savings in the region of £10,000 per


Solar is just part of a substantial invest to save programme implemented by the Trust

throughout the last 18 months, a programme that has facilitated a reduction in electricity

consumption by 42%. Investments have included the replacement of all original 54w

light fittings with 18w LED alternatives, and installation of swimming pool covers, also

expected to save approximately £10,000 a year.

terms, energy costs account for approximately 10% of the Trust's total expenditure.

Minimising consumption serves to enhance the Trust's long term financial sustainability.

Head of Operations, David Kiernan states “We have made great strides in our quest to

become a more energy efficient organisation, and we have no intention of resting on our

laurels. We will continue to explore opportunities to further enhance our existing high

standards of energy and resource management”.

Facilities Manager Chris Von Bargen adds “Without getting too technical, the investment

has provided our maintenance team with the tools and data required to make a

significant difference. We are very ambitious and intend to become an example of best

practice for other leisure facilities.”
