Reserve Smart Energy Strategies for Your Hotels
Hospitality chains know that energy expenses are a major cost of doing business. In fact, the hospitality industry spends over $7.5 billion on energy each year.1 Withnatural gas and electricity prices seemingly always on the rise—and with demands for greater profitability also increasing—hospitality managers have no room for error if they want to keep their jobs, but fail to contain energy costs.
The good news for managers is that strategic improvements to their energy management can lower utility costs. According to ENERGY STAR® partners in the hospitality industry, these expenses have been cut by 10 to 30 percent without sacrificing service, quality, style or comfort.2 Furthermore, if energy use were reduced by just 10 percent across the industry, it would represent a savings of $750 million and help reduce U.S. greenhouse emissions by 6 million tons.3 Direct Energy Business can help hospitality chains find the right energy strategies.
