The Oberoi and Tri­dent ho­tels, part of hos­pi­tal­ity ma­jor EIH, have in­tro­duced so­lar power in a bid to ful­fil their elec­tric­ity needs.

With this, the two ho­tels plan to adopt re­new­able en­ergy for meet­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal chal­lenges. A cap­tive power plant in Balasar, Haryana will gen­er­ate 7.5 MW of elec­tric­ity to meet the en­ergy de­mands of the two ho­tels, said the state­ment is­sued by the com­pany.

Sus­tain­able ex­pe­ri­ence

Abhishek Pan­shikar, Gen­eral Man­ager, The Oberoi, Gu­ru­gram, said, “We are proud that our Gu­ru­gram ho­tels are now op­er­at­ing on 100 per cent so­lar power. This is our small way of giv­ing back to na­ture and pro­vid­ing our guests a sus­tain­able lux­ury ex­pe­ri­ence.”

The so­lar power plant has been equipped with poly­crys­talline tech­nol­ogy and is spread over 25 acres with 27,000 so­lar pan­els in­stalled. The plant’s per­for­mance ra­tio is 76.50 per cent.

The Oberoi and the Tri­dent in Gu­ru­gram aim at re­duc­ing CO2 emis­sions by 12,344 tonnes per year, the state­ment added.

“Sur­veys have shown that guests pre­fer to stay in en­vi­ron­ment-friendly ac­com­mo­da­tions. This is an im­por­tant pri­or­ity for us.

“Our guests will be pleased to know that they are stay­ing in a ho­tel that is fully pow­ered by so­lar en­ergy,” said Amit Khare, Gen­eral Man­ager, Tri­dent, Gu­ru­gram.
