“The Department of Energy was pleased to offer this opportunity to Bermuda’s hotels,” said the Minister of Home Affairs Walter Roban. ”Globally, hotels are one of the most energy intensive businesses with correspondingly high energy costs.

“Energy efficiency may provide savings of 20% or more and is one of the most controllable operating costs. Government is pleased to once again be able to assist our hotels in mapping out ways in which to lower their operational energy costs, allowing them to better and more affordably service their customers in Bermuda.”
