Boulders Climbing Gym

Boulders Climbing Gym used MGE's Shared Savings program to upgrade to energy-efficient LEDs throughout its 8,000-square-foot indoor rock climbing facility.

Through Shared Savings, a loan program to fund energy efficiency improvements, MGE business customers invest in building upgrades to improve their energy use. MGE provides upfront financing, and the customer repays the loan through energy savings.

Boulders Climbing Gym, an 8,000-square-foot indoor rock climbing facility, recently upgraded its lighting. The business replaced more than 150 fluorescent lights with energy-efficient LEDs. The upgrades are expected to save the company thousands of dollars in energy costs annually. Boulders expects to recover their investment in about two years.

The Shared Savings program has loaned about $15 million for 150 projects throughout the last 10 years.
