Recreation Complex Receives Funding for Upgrade

The Powell River Recreation Complex will soon have new equipment installed to make it more environmentally friendly. 


The recreation complex will receive $1.6 million in funding from the federal government’s Green and Inclusive Community Buildings program to help pay for the installation of an ice plant heat recovery system. 


It will transfer waste heat from the ice plant in the complex to help reduce the facility’s overall energy consumption. 


The money saved on utility costs is expected to be reinvested in recreational programming and future facility improvements. 


Sean Fraser, Minister of Housing, Infrastructure and Communities, says retrofitting the Powell River Recreation Complex will help save on utility costs, reduce GHG emissions, and continue to provide the community with essential programming and services. 


Powell River Mayor Ron Woznow says the project is essential to advance the City’s 2019 commitment to mitigating the impacts of climate change by limiting GHG emissions.
