It has been just about eight months since the installation of 1,729 solar modules atop the roof of the meeting space at the Anaheim Marriott, and the hotel is already seeing a significant reduction in its energy consumption – particularly during the recent heat wave in Orange County.
According to Alex Shotwell, Director of Sales & Marketing, "During the month of June, the Anaheim Marriott typically consumes 880,000 Kwh of electricity, and during the past six months the rooftop system has already produced 402,320 Kwh, thereby slashing our energy consumption by 8 percent.
The Anaheim Marriott is believed to be the first and only hotel in Orange County to implement a significant renewable energy program which falls in line with the pending Senate Bill 100 proposing that California will receive all of its power from renewable energy, such as solar and wind power, by 2045. Mr. Shotwell notes that the solar energy project at the hotel cost $1.1M.
Located on the Anaheim Campus and within walking distance of Disneyland® Park, the Anaheim Marriott combines well-appointed accommodations and superior service. An ideal choice for a family getaway, the hotel features its own dedicated Disney® Desk staffed by Disneyland cast members in the lobby as well as a Concierge Desk which can make all arrangements for tickets to the other theme parks and attractions, many at special pricing. The Anaheim Marriott is also a great venue for those who place strong emphasis on quality food and beverage, with nFuse, a stylish bar and restaurant offering fresh California cuisine, an expert mixology team creating handcrafted cocktails from house-made infused syrups, and an impressive collection of bourbon and whiskeys. Other hotel facilities include a resort-style pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, Starbucks® Coffee House, grab 'n' go market, and pizza spot.
