PACE in Ohio: Toledo Club lifted by energy upgrades

The Toledo Club on Thursday unveiled its completed energy upgrade project for the downtown building, which turns 100 in June.

Upgrades include 15 new energy-efficient windows on the building’s west side, updated heating and cooling systems, energy-efficient LED light fixtures, lighting controls, and an automated temperature control system that is attuned to the club’s social calendar, increasing heat or air conditioning when there are events and reducing them for rooms not in use.

GEM Energy, part of Rudolph/​Libbe Inc., performed the updates. The project was financed through Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority’s BetterBuildings Northwest Ohio program and the financing tool Property Assessed Clean Energy program. The upgrade cost more than $1 million, said Kevin Moyer, executive director of energy efficiency and alternative energy programs at the Port Authority. Read more.
