NRG energy to outfit The Phoenician with solar panels

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, in partnership with NRG Energy, through its wholly-owned subsidiary NRG Renew, unveiled its first project to integrate clean sustainable energy at The Phoenician, a Luxury Collection resort. Using approximately 2,000 photovoltaic solar panels, the 568 kilowatt solar installation will offset a portion of The Phoenician resort’s energy demand – an amount equivalent to the energy needs of approximately 90 homes. 

In addition to its sustainability benefits, the panels also provide shading and outdoor event space. This project is the first of several between NRG and Starwood. The partnership will also incorporate solar installations at The Westin St. John Resort in the U.S. Virgin Islands and The Westin Maui Resort & Spa, Ka’anapali.

Together, all three installations are expected to provide more than 2 megawatts (MWdc) of solar power. Both island installations are especially significant in their respective locations, as they will provide clean, efficient power that helps protect the pristine locations where our properties are located.
