Solar Solutions in San Francisco
The entire team at Marin Suites Hotel is proud to be leading the way in Marin County for greener hospitality practices as the only all solar-powered hotel in the region. Protecting our environment and the beautiful community around us has never been more important.
As part of our long-term commitment to reducing carbon footprint, every facet of our property is powered by clean energy, including electricity, air conditioning, heat, laundry, and the swimming pool. This means our 453 solar panels are managing to:
- Produce 250,000 kilowatt hours annually
- Yield the output of planting more than 80 acres of trees
- Total the equivalent of taking 45 cars off the road
Marin Suites Hotel's greener hospitality initiatives are in partnership with Bay Area-based company, Clean Solar, which led the completion of the three-year project to install the solar panels.
Additional refreshingly green on-property initiatives include:
- Replaced plastic water bottles with 100% recyclable and ceritified refillable Path waterbottles
- A refillable water station for guests
- A recycling program
- Water save cards in guest rooms to promote the reuse of towels and bedsheets
- Elimination of single-use shampoo and bath gel
- Low flow toilets and water-saving shower heads + sink faucets
- Limited irrigation and artificial lawns installed in the hotel courtyard
- Coverings on the pool and spa at night to save on water evaporation
