NATIONAL REPORT—It is no secret that energy management can be a major challenge for hotels. In an industry focused on providing superior customer experiences and maintaining immaculate facilities, high electricity bills can feel uncontrollable—just another cost of doing business. Hotel facility managers are trained to think about electricity bills in terms of kilowatt-hours (kWh), which equates to how much energy the building consumes each month.
Between 2010 and 2013 the Las Vegas Sands Corp., owner of The Venetian and The Palazzo hotels, saved close to $2.5 million annually by changing their light bulbs to LED bulbs. Such is the power of green lighting. If you are a hotelier looking for a way to be both energy and economically efficient, LED is clearly the way to go. However, in your quest for energy efficiency and environmental sustainability, don’t overlook the exterior of your property. Installing LED landscape lighting can substantially increase curb appeal, make your guests’ stay more pleasant, boost security, improve safety, reduce your electricity bill, and significantly decrease the strain your property places on the environment. Why use LED bulbs over their incandescent, compact florescent or halogen counterparts? LEDs last 50 times longer than a typical incandescent and 20 to 25 times longer than a typical halogen.
