What do these 27 arenas have in common?

So far this year, 27 arenas have made the switch to REALice in Canada. REALice is so much more than reducing an arena’s energy costs and CO2 emissions. It’s extending the life of the refrigeration equipment too, with a maintenance-free system that’s an easy install and eligible for incentives from many public utilities/programs.

Reduce your arena’s cost of operations without compromise with REALice.
