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 incentives and free technical assistance to help you get started.
Call 1-855-433-2700 and request a Facility Assessment. A ComEd energy engineer will assess your facility and equipment for potential electrical savings during a two-hour site walkthrough.
Within a month, you will receive a high-level summary recommending energy-saving changes and upgrades that can improve the energy efficiency of your business.
After you have decided which energy-saving improvements you want to make, consult the ComEd Energy Efficiency Service Provider
Directory to find a contractor who can provide the products and services you need and help you apply for ComEd Energy Efficiency Program incentives.
Funds are limited and will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
