Johnson Controls Inc. recently completed the installation of new solar heating systems at seven indoor municipal pools in El Paso, Texas. The new systems are expected to save more than $1.5 million in energy costs from pool operations over the next 10 years.
Pools heated by the new solar systems include those at the Marty Robbins Recreation Center, Armijo Park Recreation Center and Pool, WW Cowan Recreation Center, Leo Cancellare Recreation Center, Hilos de Plata Senior Center and Pool, T & I Recreation Center and Veterans Recreation Center.
The projects required the use of more than 700 solar thermal panels covering nearly 32,000 square feet.
