Electricity use at Windsor Leisure centre increased in the 2012/13 financial year due to the increasing number of people using the centre and building works.
Manager Jes Spencer presented a report to members of the Royal Borough's sustainability panel on Tuesday night.
In the report he said electricity used in 2012/13 increased by 40 per cent to consumption of 575,160 kilowatt hours compared with 411,140 in 2011/12.
Mr Spencer said it was down to more customers using facilities at the Stovell Road centre such as a new gym which opened in January, maintenance projects and building works.
In 2012/13 the number of customers increased by 86,787, from 732,560 in 2011/12 to 819,347 - which included 40,000 additional swims.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
