Connecticut hotel cuts energy costs in half with solar installation

Source:Verogy

Verogy, a Hartford, Connecticut-based solar energy developer, completed a 64-kW rooftop solar energy project at Econo Lodge in Old Saybrook.

Econo Lodge owns the system and will use the clean energy it produces to power its business. The 160-module array will produce 70,274 kWh of renewable energy every year

“Econo Lodge is a prime example of how going solar can be a smart way for businesses to reduce their electricity costs and increase customer satisfaction,” said William Herchel, CEO of Verogy. “We’re thankful for the opportunity to help a local Connecticut business take advantage of all the benefits that renewable energy has to offer.”

In addition to cost savings from the rooftop solar project, Econo Lodge received financial support from Connecticut’s Zero Emissions Renewable Energy Credit (ZREC) program. Econo Lodge received a ZREC contract which served as the main funding source for the project, offsetting nearly 80% of its costs.

“Verogy provided us with extensive support and expertise through every step of the solar energy process, ensuring successful completion of this project,” said Mayur Solanki, owner of Econo Lodge Inn & Suites in Old Saybrook. “Our rooftop solar array will offset half of our energy costs, which will help us better serve our customers in Old Saybrook.”
