The City of Darebin has delivered a wide range of programs and initiatives over the past two years to ensure that Reservoir Leisure Centre reduces its impact on the environment and the Earth's resources.

Some of the initiatives have included:
 100% green power – all electricity used at RLC is sourced from wind or solar power.
 Deployment of Pool Blankets on all Pools – saving 500,000 litres of water each year and over 300 tonnes of green house gases.
 Use of solar heating to assist with the heating of the indoor pool facilities.
 Installation of variable speed pumps to reduce electricity use.
 Sensor lights and timers installed throughout the facility and in the car park.
 Retrofit double glazing to Gymnasium windows to reduce demand on heating and cooling systems.
 Optimisation of pool pump speeds.
 Voltage Optimisation device installed to save electricity across the site.
 Draught sealing the pool hall doors to save gas heating consumption and provide greater comfort.

Looking into the Future
The City of Darebin will continue to ensure that RLC is leading the way on reducing green house emissions and addressing climate change. What this means to you as a member is that you can continue to be active and healthy in the knowledge that the place where you work out is focused on keeping the Earth healthy.
 
Be An Energy Monitor
As part of Reservoir Leisure Centre's commitment to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and energy costs, the public is able to access energy usage data about the site.

We encourage the public to join this initiative to gain a better understanding of energy use, and to let us know if you notice any issues.
