Prairie Band Pottawatomie Nation

Boys & Girls Club Indoor Pool Solar Panel Heating System

Prairie Band Potawatomie Nation is committed to environmental stewardship, as well as fiscal responsibility. So when PBP turned to McElroy’s for a new heating solution to its 98,000-gallon Boys and Girls Club indoor pool, McElroy’s turned to the sun. Led by V.P. Greg Hunsicker, McElroy’s replaced the propane-heated system with a custom-designed, 48-panel, roof-mounted solar thermal system. The solar heating system keeps the 3,857-square foot pool a perfect 87 degrees year round. It also keeps PBP’s operating costs down, and will provide a full return on investment in approximately 12 years.

McElroy’s commitment to me and my employer to identify problems, repair work on existing issues, planning and installation of new projects, maintenance, and ongoing technical support as needed has been exceptional. The expertise of their service team is an asset our entire company relies on.
