City buildings scheduled for energy study

Five city-owned buildings are scheduled to undergo an energy audit to ensure they're operating at maximum efficiency.

The Military Museum, Bowen Park Recreation Centre, Nanaimo Ice Centre, Port Theatre and Police Services Building will be included in the assessment, expected to cost about $25,000.

Through a program with B.C. Hydro, the provincial utility could pay up to half the cost of the study. Once the city implements recommendations from the project, B.C. Hydro might cover the entire cost of the study.
