EVEN MORE CURRENT FACILITY PROJECTS 

HEAT PUMP PROJECT: The Y has over 270 geo-thermal wells that help control our heating and cooling of the facility.  This project began earlier this fall and we have been replacing the older and less energy efficient pumps with new more efficient pumps.

LED LIGHTING PROJECT: In an effort to become even more energy efficient we are switching every light fixture in our facility to LED lighting.  This project is being done at an estimated cost of $68,000 and will save an estimated $20,555 annual on the YMCA's electricty costs.  MMU will rebate the Y $14,200 for making this switch to more efficient lighting throughout our facility.
