The Phoenix Clarion Hotel in the US has finished installation of a new 100-kilowatt combined heat and power system that will reduce the hotel’s energy bills-particularly during peak times-and pay for itself in less than 30 months.
The CHP system, built and financed by Easy Energy, will generate electricity for the guestrooms and recycle the waste heat for the pool, spa, and guestroom water needs.
“We had to find a way to decrease our electricity costs without impacting the comfort and services for our hotel guests,” says James Evanoff, general manager of Clarion Hotel Phoenix.
The project received an $80,000 energy efficiency rebate from Southwest Gas.
