Green Leagues presents: Sustainability Spotlight
 

 

"Sustainability is a framework that can unify discussion on how to re-envision the role the hall is to play in our community."

 

Kenneth at Queen Alexandra Community League wants to make the community hall a functioning, positive and sustainable place for the community to gather, including on-site power generation, heat and water production, edible landscaping, and safe and sustainable place for kids to play.

Rio Terrace Community League – a great place for family and community!

 

This is the slogan for the West Edmonton Community League, but what happen to Community Leagues when they have to deal with an ageing community hall and infrastructure that needs replacement?

 

Rio Terrace knew that they needed to replace equipment in the hall that was near its end of life and they saw this as an opportunity to create long term efficiency for the hall as well as support the league’s financial health.

Reduce Consumption. Reduce Expenses. Conserve Energy.

 

These are the three goals of Blue Quill Community League’s Energy Efficiency Initiative. As one of the larger community halls in the city, the facility has a high energy demand and cost all year long; in the summer, it’s air conditioning loads and in the winter, it’s the heating and lighting loads.

Cloverdale Community League

 

 

They view energy efficiency as not only being a model of sustainability but also as a method to make their hall cheaper to manage, increase the comfort of the hall, and increasing the lifespan of the building. This then means that volunteer time and community league resources can be reinvested into the other things that the community loves, like sports and programs.

Burnewood Community League

 

 

It started with a simple statement, “why not do it now, while we can prepare and plan, rather than have to scramble to replace our aging furnace when it fails in the middle of winter.”

 

This thinking lead Burnewood Community League to decrease their electricity bill by approximately 44%, through the power of energy efficiency.
