Resort in Costa Rica becomes electrically self-sustained with new solar garden
Montezuma, Costa Rica -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/17/2013 -- Ylang Ylang Beach Resort in Costa Rica recently launched a new solar garden project making the resort nearly completely self-sustained when it comes to electricity needs. A collection of solar panels was placed throughout the property to harvest abundant solar energy and convert it to electricity for the resort. The solar garden provides resort guests with most of their electrical needs including lights, electrical outlets, fans and air-conditioning. The resort’s restaurant, bar and front desk also rely on this sustainable energy.
“We are very proud to reduce the impact on the spectacular environment that surrounds our resort,” said the general manager of Ylang Ylang Beach Resort. “By using sustainable energy we produce right here on property, we hope to mitigate our carbon footprint and ensure that our Costa Rica rainforest will be enjoyed by visitors for many more decades to come.”
Ylang Ylang Beach Resort is a secluded beach-side retreat in the Costa Rican jungle adjacent to a nature preserve. Given its unique location, environmental sustainability is of the utmost importance to the resort team. Ylang Ylang Beach Resort is engaged in various eco-tourism initiatives in addition to the solar garden. The resort strives to provide clients with authentic experiences full of smells and sounds of a beautiful jungle oasis – embodying the Costa Rica slogan of “Pura Vida” or “Pure Life.”
