Resorts and Hotels FAQs:

How can SimpliPhi help maximize the investment we’ve made in renewable energy?
A growing number of hotels and resort properties are generating some or all of their electricity on-site with solar PV or other renewable energy installations.

By limiting a hotel’s need to rely on grid power when it’s likely most expensive and reducing short-term usage spikes, SimpliPhi is able to help hotels reduce their exposure to significant peak demand charges, which can account for as much as 50 percent of their utility bill.
