Off the western pacific coast of the U.S., Outrigger Guam Beach Resort has collaborated with O3 Energy of Mariana to install rooftop solar panels to generate some of the required electric energy from Sun.

The resort is first of its kind on Mariana Island where using solar energy to generate electricity was just a dream prior to the installation.

Pressing upon the watt consumption of the hotel, General Manager Steve Solberg said, “Electricity is one of our biggest expenses. The hotel has worked hard to become more energy-efficient over the years, including installing new windows that help conserve energy.”

In total, Solberg said, “The hotel spends approximately $350,000 each month on electricity, water and gas.”

The installation is aimed at the use of clean energy on the island keeping ion view the need to keep the Oceania clean and green.

“The less energy we use, I mean it just makes so much more sense. Outrigger is all oceanfront properties and very concerned with the cleanliness of the oceans”, Solberg said.

The project, after installation would produce over 22,000 Kw of electricity per month.

Outrigger Guam Beach Resort is a boutique beachfront resort visited by over 30,000 guests annually.

Additionally, the solar panels are part of O3 Energy Marianas’ first commercial project on Guam and will be maintained by the Dallas-based company as part of a 25-year lease agreement.
