Lighting Retrofit Saves Casino 389,000 kWh

casinoAn energy efficient lighting retrofit at the Kah-Nee-Ta High Desert Lodge, Casino and Conference Center should result in 389,852 kilowatt hours of energy saved.

The project will equal a reduction in carbon emissions of 195 tons a year, reports Indian Country Today.

The casino, near Warm Springs, Ore., is looking at increasing its environmental responsibility initiatives, said Jeff Dean of Kah-Nee-Ta.

“The lighting project was a step in the right direction,” Dean said.

To help get the project started, the casino sought and received a utility rebate from the Bonneville Power Administration and Wasco electric. Warm Springs Ventures and Warm Springs Power and Water Enterprises also assisted on the project.

The resort’s other sustainability initiatives include adding recycling bins, offering eco-friendly bath products and running a reusable linen program for guest.

The casino is not alone in recent efforts to adopt energy efficiency in the hotel industry.

HEI Hotels & Resorts has invested more than $6.5 million in energy management programs at its hotels and resorts in the U.S. since 2005.

HEI’s initial capital upgrades have already resulted in energy savings of more than $2 million annually.
