The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) would like to invite the community to the official unveiling of the new lithium ion battery powered Zamboni for the Comox Valley Sports Centre happening August 3, 2021 at 2 pm. 

“As part of our climate transition to low carbon, we are excited to launch an electric Zamboni for the Sports Centre, and we look forward to the day when most industrial/commercial vehicles in the Comox Valley run on non-petroleum fuels,” said Electoral Area A Director and Comox Valley Recreation Commission Chair, Daniel Arbour. “Come out on August 3rd to see this new machine in action. The new Zamboni not only produces zero emissions but also will save approximately $6,000 annually compared to the older propane Zamboni. The emissions-free power will ensure cleaner air for the thousands of people in the rink, and showcases trailblazing efforts to convert old machinery into more sustainable and efficient equipment.”

Everyone is welcome to attend the free public unveiling event on August 3, 2021 at 2 pm at the Comox Valley Sports Centre (Arena 1). For more information visit
