01 Dec Maui Ka’anapali Villas Shrinks Carbon Footprint by 35%
The Maui Ka’anapali Villas is the latest property within Ka’anapali Resort to go green as they proudly announce the completion of a year-long sustainability enhancement project. The 260- room condominium resort hotel has been able to slash CO2 emissions by an amount equivalent to the CO2 emissions from 26,434 barrels of oil, 2,173 passenger vehicles, or the energy supplied to 967 homes for an entire year. Wow!
“We were able to significantly reduce our CO2 emissions because the projects helped us reduce
power consumption, generate our own electricity and handle water more efficiently. We’re proud
to do our part in helping to preserve and protect the stunning natural beauty that our guests come to Maui to enjoy,” said Hal Nordblom, general manager of Maui Ka’anapali Villas.
The project included improvements to the plumbing and wastewater infrastructure, and the
installation of a modernized air conditioning system, photovoltaic panels, a solar heating system
for the resort’s two swimming pools, and more than 500 LED lightbulbs along walkways throughout the 11-acre resort.
This year Maui Kaanapali Villas was recognized by TripAdvisor with a “Certificate of
Excellence” after receiving over 500 “excellent” ratings, and it was named “one of Hawaii’s best
hotels” by readers of HAWAII Magazine in the annual Readers’ Choice Awards.
