Motel 6 Installs Efficiency Retrofits in 7,530 Rooms

Motel 6 will install energy-saving retrofits in a total of 7,530 rooms in the 66 Motel 6 properties located within Pacific Gas & Electric’s service area in northern and central California.

Working on behalf of PG&E, Honeywell will install energy-saving retrofits as part of the Honeywell Cool Control Plus program.

Motel 6 has independently installed the Telkonet SmartEnergy occupancy sensors and thermostats in 49 properties in California. The new installations will bring the total number of rooms with retrofits to 13,440.

“Motel 6 will no longer waste electricity in empty rooms and will also cut back on properties’ carbon dioxide emissions -? we have calculated that this program will yield a reduction of 10.1 million pounds of carbon dioxide per year for us,” said Dan Gilligan, vice president of utilities for Accor North America.

Honeywell won the $4.7 million contract from PG&E in March 2007 to implement an energy-efficiency program in small hotels and motels.

In June, Motel 6 rolled out what it said is the first national fluorescent light bulb and battery recycling program within the hospitality industry.
