Centara Transforms Maldives Resort into Sustainable Solar Power

Centara Hotels & Resorts, a Thailand hotel operator, has transformed one of its Maldives resorts into a self-sustaining solar energy generator after the adoption of a rooftop solar panel system that will begin producing electricity this month.

Following the completion of solar panel installation atop the roofs of all of the resort’s main structures, Centara Ras Fushi Resort & Spa Maldives will generate enough power to supply close to 40 percent of the its energy needs, resulting in an annual energy savings equivalent to 307,000 kilowatt hours, or about 83,000 litres of diesel fuel.

“The rooftop solar conversion is one of Centara’s most ambitious sustainability projects undertaken at a single property,” said David Good, VP Operations, Centara Hotels & Resorts, “The benefits to the environment made it a compelling choice, and we will be looking at options for expanding the solar program to other properties going forward.”
