Last week, BCCPA and EngAge BC staff members visited one of our member sites, Kaigo Senior Living (Fraserview), to learn more about the latest energy-saving innovation, in an initiative lead by Energy Specialist Jasdeep Singh Gulati through FortisBC‘s Custom Efficiency Program.
Responsible for an estimated savings of 650 GJ a year, the LUX Laundry System provides an estimated 70% reduction of natural gas for washing and a 10% natural gas reduction for drying in the commercial laundry system. The system uses ultraviolet light ozone, from room air, as a catalyst to generate hydroxyl radicals. These are then injected into the wash process and are used as a secondary oxidizer to work at low-temperature washing.
In addition to learning more about the system, the BCCPA and EngAge BC team also heard from Fraserview staff, who commended the innovation for its ability to save water and extend clothing life.
“I’m happy to hear that the LUX Laundry System has left seniors’ clothes with improved cleanliness and freshness, through disinfection, which is more powerful than hot water and bleach,” says BCCPA and EngAge BC Director of Programs, Snezana Ristovski.
FortisBC’s Custom Efficiency Program, led by Jasdeep, continues to be successful in helping operators reduce costs and emissions. Thanks to the program, 75% of the capital project costs of the innovation’s installation is covered.
