Wyndham Philadelphia-Mount Laurel Adds to Solar Success; Upgrades Boilers, Lighting, Toilets

6/11/2014

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J.—More than two years after going “live” with their 756-kilowatt solar photovoltaic (PV) system—a structure based on 10 carports in the hotel’s parking area—the owners of the Wyndham Philadelphia-Mount Laurel are investing in additional systems to further reduce energy and water consumption and costs significantly. Investments involve a switch from heating oil to natural gas for air and water heating, an LED retrofit project, and an upgrade to ultra high efficiency toilets. Rishi Shah, Asset Manager of the hotel, says the current transition to natural gas for heating involves a significant mechanical system upgrade. “We are upgrading boilers and storage tanks,” he says. “It will result in tremendous operating savings and have a payback of three years. We are estimating a savings of $7,000 to $8,000 per month.” Shah says the upgrades will cost $320,000 and are being paid for without any incentives. This past January the hotel’s owners (Shah’s family) wrapped up a transition to LED lighting throughout the hotel, including guestrooms.
