Create the perfect guest experience in your hotel with energy-efficient upgrades.
U.S. hotels spend almost $4 billion a year on energy costs, and that energy expense is the fastest-growing operating cost in the industry. The Sponsors of Mass Save offer financial incentives to make energy efficiency projects a reality so that businesses can start saving money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and improve comfort for staff and guests.
Key Energy-Saving Opportunities
1. Efficient Lighting DesignEnergy-efficient lighting can provide better aesthetics for your hotel and save energy. Indoor and outdoor LED lighting and controls use light and energy more efficiently, saving money and energy. LED lightbulbs are long-lasting and require fewer changes, freeing up maintenance time.
2. Water Heating UpgradesHot water is used every day in a hotel, and it’s a cost that can add up quickly. Upgrade to higher efficiency systems to lower heating expenses, decrease equipment maintenance time, and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
3. Vending MisersVending machines typically use electricity 24 hours a day, even if no one is around to use them. Vending misers use motion sensors to automatically power vending machines down when the surrounding area is unoccupied and power them back up when a person approaches the machine.
4. Laundry Equipment UpgradesThe time and cost it can take a hotel to do laundry can seem daunting. Ozone systems and new, high-speed clothes washers have greater capacity and reduced drying times, meaning less money spent on energy. High-efficiency laundry equipment can use up to 50 percent less energy and water than conventional systems.
