Customer comfort is a top priority for hotel managers, but controlling costs is critical in this competitive market. Energy efficiency opportunities offer a cost-effective way to cut costs while maintaining a high level of service to guests. In a typical hotel, lighting and HVAC account for more than 70 percent of total electricity consumed, making those systems a good target for energy-efficient upgrades. If you take a three-pronged approach—improving operations and maintenance procedures, upgrading lighting and updating HVAC systems—electricity savings can be as high as 45 percent.
Whatever strategy you choose to reduce energy use in your hotel, motel or other hospitality business, the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program offers cash incentives and free technical assistance to help you get started.
