|Purchasing Third-Party Certified Green Power Product?||Yes|
The Hilton BWI Airport Hotel, located in Linthicum, Maryland and adjacent to the Baltimore BWI Airport, is a full-service luxury hotel and conference center. The hotel purchases green power equivalent to a portion of their annual electricity consumption and aims to improve its environmental performance over time, constantly exploring green projects and encouraging responsible green behavior. With support from the state of Maryland, the Hilton BWI is designing an energy conservation project in which they will install energy efficient thermostats, improve their water systems, and upgrade their ventilation system. Additionally, the hotel has partnered with a solar provider to install solar panels on top of the hotel.
Greg Miller, Managing Director says, "We have a shared goal in preserving our surroundings. The responsible action to protect our resources through green power purchasing is an important step toward realizing that goal.” The Hilton BWI strives to set an example for the greater Baltimore-Washington area and is pleased to be a Green Power Partner. They hope that their neighbors will recognize the benefits of energy conservation, and will join them in their commitment to "go green." Miller offers the following advice to other hoteliers: "Reducing your impact on the environment does not necessarily require heavy spending. By encouraging your staff and guests to behave responsibly, you can still make a serious difference. Simple changes like turning off lights, monitoring thermostats, and giving guests the option to re-use linens are all productive."
