Trafford Leisure employs a team of over 500 friendly, fully qualified staff on 11 leisure sites across Trafford in Manchester including a golf course, swimming pools and gyms.
ENER-G installed and commissioned three 70kW cogeneration systems at Altrincham, Sale and Stretford leisure centres. Collectively, the CHP units are achieving annual carbon dioxide savings of 359 tonnes. This is equivalent to the environmental benefit of removing 120 cars from the road each year, or to the carbon sequestered annually by 294 acres of forest.
Trafford Leisure Centre Trust opted to use a direct energy purchase scheme to install a CHP unit. With no capital outlay for equipment or installation, the Trust benefitted from an immediate reduction in their energy costs and carbon footprint. The CHP system is then paid for via a metered energy charge that is guaranteed to be lower than previous electricity purchase costs.
