TWO Majorcan hotels have managed to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions by 82 tonnes per year by using solar energy.
The hotel chain Proturs has changed to piped gas from Gesa (Sa Coma) and installed solar panels in two of its hotels, in Son Servera and Sant Llorenç. This initiative will allow them to reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere by 82 tonnes per year. In a communique, Gesa said that Protur had installed 100 solar panels on the roof of the Hotel Sa Coma Playa which are capable of producing more than 150'860 kilowatt-hours per year. This will reduce by 70 percent the hotel's consumption of conventional energy. Another four establishments of this hotel chain have replaced their oil usage with piped gas, which is more environmentally-friendly, according to Gesa. Also, the Biomar Thalassa & Wellness centre has installed 60 solar panels which will reduce their use of conventional energy by 72 percent.
