How to Start a Green Bowling Alley

All types of businesses today are concerned with reducing their energy use, both for environmental reasons, and to reduce their operational costs. Fortunately, if you are interested in starting a bowling alley of your own, or you want to improve the energy efficiency of the one you already own, there are a number of choices you can make, from purchasing used bowling equipment, to changing the type of energy you use. In addition to helping you with the selection of cost-effective bowling alley supplies, Murrey Bowling has the experience and versatility to help you with every aspect of designing, creating, and constructing the perfect green bowling alley for you and your community.

Eliminate what You Don’t Need

Look for places where you are using power unnecessarily. There are many products available on the market today that are designed to work without the high energy demands of previous products. Every little detail matters, from the lightbulbs you use, to the type of heating and cooling units you have installed. Also, look at areas of concern where insulation and sealing cracks could have a big impact on your energy consumption. Look at the appliances you have in the food area. Are they Energy Star rated?

Rely on Team Work

If every employee in your bowling alley is on board and following your green policy, you can have a much more significant impact on how much energy is used. Get rid of anything made of plastic, paper, or glass that is meant to be used once and thrown away. Look at reusable products that won’t add to the landfill problem. Reduce water usage, and turn off lights when they aren’t being used. You could also make the transition to solar energy, to completely or nearly eliminate your need for fossil fuels.

Upgrade with Used Bowling Equipment

It isn’t a matter of “either or.” Often, the used bowling equipment that we have for sale is not only in great shape, but a lot more up-to-date than some existing bowling alleys already have. Instead of throwing old or gently used items, upgrade to a better quality, and enjoy years of service from quality equipment. To learn more, call 310 532-609.
