Last month, Vail announced that the company has achieved the 10 percent energy reduction goal announced in 2008, through a continuous focus on energy efficiency. Let's all remember to do our part on Earth Day and every day!
To help put Vail's 10 percent energy savings into perspective, the amount saved over the last three years is equal to:
Examples of the energy savings activities include performing energy audits at all Vail Resorts properties, replacing inefficient lighting and using motion sensors to shut off lights when people leave the room, using less compressed air to allow snow-making systems to be more efficient, and more.
"We're thrilled to achieve our energy goal," said Rob Katz, CEO of Vail Resorts. "However, we are not stopping here. Vail Resorts remains committed to reducing our energy use further, both because it's the right thing to do for the environment and also because it's the right thing to do for our Company."
"I am announcing a new energy reduction goal, 'The Next 10.' Vail Resorts can reduce its energy consumption by another 10 percent by 2020 while continuing to provide the experience of a lifetime for all of our guests and employees."
Thank you Vail for all you do to help save energy and allow us all to enjoy the mountains we love so much! Here's to "The Next 10" and Happy Earth Day!
