A trendsetter in the boutique hotel market segment of Puerto Rico, the San Juan Water Beach Club Hotel has implemented a green program to ensure the long-term sustainability of our planet without compromising comfort or style. Green initiatives include:
Implementing the “Help Protect our Environment” program that provides towel and sheet cards in every guest room asking guests to consider reusing towels and not having sheets changed daily.
- Installing energy efficient air conditioning system throughout the hotel.
- Installing inverter units in all public areas.
- Upgrading all light bulbs to LED bulbs.
- Changing parking lights from high-pressure sodium to compact florescent, thus reducing energy consumption from 100 watts to 40 watts.
- Switched to a standard low-flow, water-saving showerhead, reducing water consumption from 5 gallons per minute to 2.5 gallons per minute.
- Testing of a prototype in all bathrooms that saves half a gallon of water per flush.
