Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru recently connected its first RoofSolar inverter, making it one of the destination’s largest resort-based solar installations.
The installation includes more than 3,000 solar panels and takes up 58,000 square feet atop the staff village.
The energy saved every year equates to powering all 103 of the guestrooms, villas and suites for 32 days or charging an eco-friendly electric golf cart more than 82,000 times. On a daily basis, it saves the equivalent of powering 15 villas for 24 hours or washing and drying 7,400 pounds of laundry.
“Our Baa Atoll home became the Maldives’ first UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in 2011 on account of its unique harmony between man and nature, and we take our role in preserving that status very seriously,” said Armando Kraenzlin, regional vice president, Four Seasons Resorts, Maldives. “This project is an important rung on our conservation ladder and takes us a step closer to reaching our eventual goal of becoming carbon-neutral.”
