Somerset Youth Civic Center rink goes green
As the snow flurries come in white, the Somerset Youth Civic Center has gone green.
Technically, it's been green for almost two years.
In February of 2007, the Board of Directors for the Civic Center decided to install an energy system to replace its old electrical system.
"Our power factor on our electrical bill was between 50-70 percent each month," Dan Gilkerson, Somerset rink manager, said. "It was costing us an extra $500-$800 monthly."
