The Aloha State is home to a bustling tourism industry and in the heart of Honolulu is hotels. Millions of visitors travel to Hawaii yearly in search of paradise experience. In order to remain on a competitive edge, numerous hotels strive to be environmentally friendly and technologically savvy in order to operate at higher level in building energy performance, landscaping, and water management.

Energy is in fact one of your organization’s most easily controlled costs. An energy efficient hotel not only improves guest comfort and reduces operating cost, it increases value to the property and strengthen organizational/brand image.

Bottom line, the industry is making the shift as we speak. Are you going to let your hotel get left behind?
