Holiday Inn Express at LaGuardia Airport to Join the Growing Energy Efficiency Movement

The Holiday Inn Express at LaGuardia Airport took a step toward becoming "carbon neutral" by teaming up with Green Energy Solutions, an energy consulting company, and will reduce their energy costs by 18.2%, or $13,493, per year.

Flushing, NY (PRWEB) -- The Holiday Inn Express at LaGuardia Airport took a step forward in its goal of going “carbon neutral” by becoming one of the first hotels in the Holiday Inn chain to install an energy management system. The hotel was advised by energy consulting firm Green Energy Solutions, a Con Edison market partner, to install in-room monitoring systems and HVAC controls that they project will save them 18.2% in energy costs, or $13,493 each year.

“The decision to invest in this system was made easy by the great rebates we got from Con Edison,” said Amit Ghandi, president of M&R Hotel Management Group, the entity that owns the hotel. Almost 50% of the project cost was subsidized by rebates from Con Edison, who offer project subsidies and other incentives to buildings who have approved the installation of energy management systems to lower energy demand.
