In a bid to reduce CO2 emissions, two popular luxury hotels in Gurugram—The Oberoi and Trident have introduced solar power to meet the electricity requirements of both the hotels.
Both The Oberoi and Trident will now use 7.5 MW of electricity that is generated at a captive power plant in Haryana’s Balasar.
Spread over 25 acres, the plant is equipped with Polycrystalline technology. With 27,000 solar panels installed, the plant’s performance ratio is determined to be 76.5 percent. Besides being eco-friendly, the plant will also help the local economy by creating additional employment opportunities.
"This is our small way of giving back to Mother Nature and providing our guests with a sustainable luxury experience," Abhishek Panshikar, General Manager at The Oberoi, said in a statement.
Trident’s General Manager Amit Khare said that recent surveys have revealed guests prefer to stay in environment-friendly accommodations.
