The Polar Palace keeps its cool

With two NHL-sized ice rinks and seating for up to 1,000, The Polar Palace Arena Complex in Lapeer looked to keep their rinks cool while saving energy. They implemented a heat recovery unit that recovers wasted heat in the form of hot water, which is then utilized in their Zamboni machines.
