Baha Mar Initiating Green Energy Programme

Baha Mar Resorts Ltd. has introduced the Seawater District Cooling Program, a new initiative that proposes to provide environmentally-responsible energy solutions for the Cable Beach area.

Representatives of the company recently met with the National Energy Policy Committee, which under the leadership of Phenton Neymour, minister of state for Public Works, is mandated to provide a National Energy Policy for The Bahamas. Under that policy, the focus would be on Renewable Energy Technologies.

During the meeting Baha Mar officials outlined to members of the committee the program’s various energy-efficient and cost-effective measures on power, water and air conditioning systems for their properties on Cable Beach, it was reported.

Benefits for Baha Mar and the wider Cable Beach area include:

– Reduced demand for electrical power generation capacity by The Bahamas Electricity Corporation

– Potential energy savings in excess of 90 percent compared to conventional air conditioning

– 25,000 MWhr per year electricity usage decrease

– Displacement of over 43,000 barrels of oil and 21,000 tons of carbon emissions per year

– Increased fuel flexibility and energy security

– Stable utility costs

The new program will use “green” technology and renewable resources to provide air conditioning on a large scale, thus helping to reduce the impact on global warming.

“Baha Mar believes whole-heartedly in doing its part to protect and preserve the environment for today’s and future generations,” said John Pagano, president, Baha Mar Development Company. “We have a unique opportunity to bring about important and positive change that will lead to more efficient use of energy and cost savings, and are fully committed to continuing in these efforts as we go forward.”

The Seawater District Cooling program is part of Baha Mar’s on-going efforts and commitment to the local environment and the community it serves.
