Energy usage is a major operating cost for hotels across the country.  According to a recent EnergyStar report, on average, America's 47,000 hotels spend $2,196 per available room each year on energy.  This represents about 6 percent of all operating costs. Energy efficiency provides hotel owners and operators cost savings that benefit their bottom line. The EcoSmart energy management system aggressively reduces energy consumption and run-time by 20 to 45 percent; while maintaining room comfort.
