Managing Energy Consumption

ENERGY SAVING IS ONLY GOOD IF IT SAVES YOU MONEY.

ENERGY SAVING IS BETTER IF IT MAKES YOU MONEY.


Guests approve of energy savings
GUESTS APPROVE OF ENERGY SAVINGS.

  • Hotel guests who care about the environment will choose you over others, if they know about your environmental efforts.

  • Maho Bay Resort, in the U.S. Virgin islands, reports that media interest in the resort’s environmental programs has made a publicity budget unnecessary for the past ten years.


How to tell guests
How To tell Guests

  • Use placards in rooms.

  • Use signs or table tents in public areas.

  • Inform guests at check-in.

  • Display your Environmental Policy.

  • Small signs calling attention to specific areas of savings.


Electricity use accounts for 60 to 70 of utility costs of a typical hotel
Electricity use accounts for 60% to 70% of utility costs of a typical hotel.

  • LIGHTING

  • HEATING VENTILATION AND AIR CONDITIONING

  • LAUNDRY AND KITCHEN

Lighting is about 30 to 40 of hotel electricity costs
Lighting is about 30% to 40% of Hotel Electricity Costs. a typical hotel.

  • North Carolina’s Administrative code 15A NCAC 18A.1800 requires 10 foot-candle illumination in Hotel common areas and 30 foot-candles in guest rooms.(at 30 in. off the floor)

  • Light energy saving rate of 50% or more is possible, when rooms are occupied.

  • Electricity to run a light bulb can cost 100 times more than the bulb did.

  • Energy efficient compact fluorescents use athird the watts, making the electric billsmaller for the same light.


Lighting is about 30 to 40 of hotel electricity costs1
Lighting is about 30% to 40% of Hotel Electricity Costs. a typical hotel.

  • Inefficient bulbs create serious heat that can run up air conditioning costs.

  • CLEANING fixtures once a year can save as much as 30% in room lighting.

  • The timing of when you use equipmentoften makes or looses an energy profit.


General operations in energy
General Operations in Energy a typical hotel.

  • Are Ice Machines energy efficient?

  • Are office machines energy efficient?

  • Are hot water heaters maintained?

  • Are boiler tubes cleaned every few years?

  • Are Pool pumps and filters cleaned?

  • Can pool filter running time be reduced?


Employee power saves energy

  • Rate Schedule fees and penalties can show something is wrong with your operation.


Free energy audits are available
FREE Energy Audits are Available a typical hotel.
