Courtyard Celebrates Its First 100% Solar Property

“We are excited to see High Hotels take the lead in such an impactful manner. The Courtyard Lancaster’s solar array installation is a concrete step forward to reduce our carbon footprint and minimize our impact on the environment,” said Denise Naguib, Vice President of Sustainability & Supplier Diversity for Marriott International. “Working in collaboration with our hotels, owners, guests and associates, we will Sustain Responsible Operations in order to meet the ambitious goals set as part of Marriott International’s sustainability and social impact platform, Serve360, and continue doing good in every direction.”

Property guests will have access to view the solar power produced in a real-time meter in the lobby.  

The 133-room property is the first Marriott to generate 100% of its electrical needs from solar energy. The solar array is slated to produce more kilowatts than the hotels requires, which will be sold back to the utility.
