The City Council said it would install a new energy-saving device at the Yarborough Leisure Centre and Birchwood Community Centre on June 20th, which would save thousands of pounds in energy bills.
The installations are part of a City of Lincoln Council push to save money on energy it is wasting in their buildings. Called a power perfector, the device is claimed to bring around £12,000 in savings to the Council.
“A power perfector is a voltage power optimiser, which means it adapts the voltage supply to the building to make the electrical equipment we use more efficient,” said Kate Bell, Community Environment Coordinator.
“This is a really simple way to reduce the amount of unnecessary energy the appliances within the City Council use.
“It will contribute a great deal to the authority’s aim of cutting its CO2 emissions by a further seven and a half per cent in 2010/11,” Bell claims.
Both Yarborough and Birchwood buildings will be open during the installations, but the bookings phone lines will be closed for the day.
