A great facility got even better last year when the skating rink at Brooks School got an energy-saving renovation. Improvements include a new rink floor, a new refrigeration system for making ice, and nearly 650 new lightbulbs and wireless lighting control, plus weatherization, HVAC, and lighting upgrades that will save both energy and money.
