YMCA of Pikes Peak Region Chooses Veregy as Energy Services Provider for Major Efficiency Project
YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region - 06/13/24 10:30 AM

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado, June 13th, 2024. — The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region is excited
to announce its selection of Veregy, a leading energy services provider, to implement a guaranteed
energy savings project. This comprehensive initiative will encompass various energy-efficient
upgrades, including LED lighting, new smart building controls, a new chiller, pool pump VFDs, and
water efficiency upgrades. With a starting project size of $1,435,394, the YMCA of the Pikes Peak
Region expects to achieve substantial energy savings, with savings projected at $1,701,394 over the
next 25 years.


This organization recognizes the importance of maintaining its facilities in peak condition for both its
members and the environment. By partnering with Veregy, the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region aims
to significantly reduce its carbon footprint and achieve substantial energy cost savings at its
Southeast and Armed Services locations. Approximately 446 metric tons of carbon dioxide will be
avoided through this project annually. That’s equivalent to 43,844 gallons of diesel consumed,
491,897 pounds of coal burned, or energy utilized by 58.2 homes’ in one year.


"While serving the Pikes Peak Region community for 146 years, we continue to strive to have the
latest fitness equipment and wellness programs for our members. Carrying that further, we remain
committed to maintaining our facilities in top shape for our members and the environment. To that
end, we've chosen to embark on a new project with Veregy, an industry leader, to update our facility's
energy efficiencies, starting with the Southeast and Armed Services Y," said Boyd Williams, CEO of
the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region.
 

To support this ambitious project, the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region has received a generous grant
of $100,000 from El Pomar. This funding will be applied toward the implementation of energy-efficient
measures, further enhancing the organization's ability to achieve its sustainability goals.
 

The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region is excited to collaborate with Veregy and looks forward to the
positive impact this project will have on the community, the environment, and the organization's long-
term financial sustainability.
