Vail Resorts Aims to Cut Energy Use 10% By 2010
A 40-year old boiler was replaced with a new high-efficiency model at the Lodge at Vail. The switch cost the hotel of $300,000 but is expected to result in 5 percent to 7 percent less consumption of natural gas. The investment is expected to pay for itself within five to seven years.
The Great Divide Lodge in Breckenridge recently received the EPA’s Energy Star award for using about 50 percent less energy than the national average for similar hotels.
