White Mountain Athletic Club Dives Into Energy Efficiency

Club went the extra mile with pool renovation

WMAC

The Problem: The White Mountain Athletic Club in Waterville Valley was paying high energy bills for a pool dehumidification system that was old and inefficient.

The Options: As part of their pool renovation plan, club owner Tom Gross, Jr. and General Manager Rene Schwartz had a choice – replace the dehumidification system with a standard model, or pay $30,000 extra for a state-of-the-art system that would greatly improve the energy efficiency of the pool operations for years to come.

The Solution: By partnering with New Hampshire Electric Co-op (NHEC) and taking advantage of Co-op Energy Solutions programs for Commercial members, WMAC was able to install an energy efficient pool dehumidification system that will save an estimated $16,000 per year in electricity costs.

“There were a lot of factors to consider when we undertook this renovation and we were so glad to have a partner in the process. NHEC made it possible for us to see the long-term value in paying a little more upfront to save a lot later.”
