Success Stories

Lighting Improvements Save Nearly $10,000 Per Year

With an electric bill of nearly $200,000 per year, management for the Detroit Lakes Community & Cultural Center (DLCCC) decided to retrofit its building’s lighting system to save energy and reduce electric costs. The 99,000 square-foot DLCCC is comprised of a 45,000 square-foot cultural center (converted from a school in 2001) and a 54,000 square-foot fitness and aquatic center built in 2000. It is home to a gym, pool, indoor play structure, meeting spaces, a learning center, senior center, and an 800-seat theatre.

Detroit Lakes Public Utilities Adds EE Programs

The City of Detroit Lakes recently presented Essentia Health St. Mary’s Detroit Lakes with a check in the amount of $13,375 for their recently completed renovation. The City partnered with the Hospital and Clinic due to their energy efficiency upgrades to cooling equipment, motor controls, high efficiency pumps, and premium motors. Not only will these investments help the facility save money by reducing overall electric usage, they also show a commitment to conserving valuable resources.
