Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort is trying to save energy since its opening in 2007. The resort was the 1st hotel in Fort Lauderdale Beach to be decided as Florida Green Lodging designation by the State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection for trying to protect the environment. The story is not ended, in the moment the resort is installing 6 wind turbines to the roof top of the 25 story all-suite resort located across from the Atlantic Ocean on AIA in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Improvements and new technologies have been implemented.
The wind turbines are tall 40 feet will be placed on each corner and center of the hotel’s rooftop. One of the wind turbines is providing 32,000 KWH helping in reducing the amount of energy being used in rooms for customers and on property. The wind turbines is expected to be installed in 2 months, this will cost almost $500 000; although, the hotel expects that this will be good investment.
