Getting to 20% by 2020

Seattle Parks and Recreation’s Sustainable Operations Unit, in partnership with Aquatics, recently finished a utility conservation retrofit project to replace old lights at Meadowbrook Pool with a new LED system. The project provides much better illumination in the natatorium, improves operations, will lower utility bills at the pool by approximately $6,500 a year, and virtually eliminates the need for bulb replacement for the next 12 years. SPR will receive a $19,000 utility conservation rebate from Seattle City Light for the work, which we will invest in other energy conservation retrofit projects. This project will help us meet the City’s goal to reduce energy consumption by 20% by 2020, as set out by the Climate Action Plan.
