Sligo Park Ho­tel in­vests in ‘greener fu­ture’

The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

The Sligo Park Ho­tel has re­cently in­stalled an elec­tric ve­hi­cle charger that can be used by ho­tel guests.

The charg­ing out­let, which took al­most two weeks to in­stall, is lo­cated in the car park, just out­side the leisure club.

Ger­ard Moore, Gen­eral Man­ager of the Sligo Park Ho­tel, said: “We want to of­fer some­thing dif­fer­ent to cus­tomers and try to re­duce our en­vi­ron­men­tal foot­print at the same time. We see this as an in­vest­ment for the fu­ture and an op­por­tu­nity to lead the way.”

The out­let works with all elec­tric cars and takes from five to eight hours to fully charge, so guests can charge their elec­tric ve­hi­cles overnight.

The Sligo based ho­tel, which has re­cently in­vested more than €3m in a com­pre­hen­sive re­design and re­fur­bish­ment, is also in­stalling so­lar pan­els on the roof of its leisure club to re­duce its car­bon foot­print.

Ger­ard Moore said: “It’s a mod­est ini­tial in­vest­ment of €15,000 to cre­ate 50 square me­tres of so­lar pan­els to help us be­come more en­vi­ron­men­tally con­scious and ul­ti­mately reach our goal of be­com­ing an en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly ho­tel.”

The pan­els on the leisure club roof will be com­pleted in Jan­uary.
