“We have become the ‘go-to’ hotel experts for optimizing energy and utility costs, easily enabling hotel owners to increase hotel profitability" -- Mr. Shannon Sentman, Co-founder & CEO

SOL VISTA, the hotel energy experts, just published a case study detailing the impressive energy cost savings resulting from their energy optimization recommendations implemented at the posh Hotel Mondrian L.A. By the conclusion of the comprehensive energy efficiency engagement, the luxury hotel realized utility cost savings of 21 percent, electricity usage reduction of 17 percent and water use reduction of 21 percent. These savings generated increased bottom line profit without inconvenience or impact to the hotel’s celebrity clientele.

The case study, available for free download here, details how the SOL VISTA team started with a complex, onsite hotel systems and equipment investigation and energy audit. Using those findings and metrics on the property’s historic energy, gas and water consumption and cost - analyzed by the Company’s proprietary Skywalk technology platform - the team developed a list of energy conservation projects. Each one included cost and estimated return on investment.

While energy efficiency was a key objective, of equal importance was whether recommendations met the artistic vision of the hotel and the luxury experience expected by upscale guests, explains Zack Moore, SOL VISTA co-founder and project manager for the Mondrian multi-year effort.

With an extensive list of recommendations in hand, the SOL VISTA team implemented each project and served as onsite project managers -- all while the Mondrian operated around the clock. From front of house to back of house projects, the SOL VISTA team and their vendors had to be invisible to the guests – especially when upgrades took place in occupied guest rooms.

“What makes us unique in the energy management market is our extensive experience in the hotel industry with its 24/7 operation,” says Mr. Shannon Sentman, Co-founder and CEO. “Our team and the vendors we select understand how to get large energy efficiency projects done without causing guest discomfort or complaints. The hotel management and staff appreciate our ability to manage these complex energy projects from start to finish so they can remain focused on delivering exceptional guest experiences,” he adds.

SOL VISTA has reduced energy costs and usage for nearly 150 hotels since its inception. To view a list of these clients, click here. The Company plans to publish a series of hotel case studies throughout the year.

“We have become the ‘go-to’ hotel experts for optimizing energy and utility costs, easily enabling hotel owners to increase hotel profitability and value on an ongoing basis,” Mr. Sentman explained.
