Australian Ski Resort Relies Entirely On Renewable Energies

Partnering with clean energy suppliers, a ski resort in Australia has announced that they have successfully transitioned all of their major operations to run entirely off renewable energies. Demonstrating its feasibility, and paving the way for further environmental action by ski resorts worldwide, the transition to renewable energies is just one of many sustainability initiatives the resort has implemented.

These include:

  • Offsetting the entirety of carbon emissions produced by their groomer and company vehicle fleet.
  • Adding an optional 4 dollar add-on to lift ticket purchases that plants a tree nearby to offset the energy expenditure from running lifts.
  • Partnering with Protect Our Winters (POW) to spread awareness of environmental issues and what can be done about them.
  • Removing all single use plastic bags from Thredbo outlets and replacing them with biodegradable alternatives.
  • Implementing flow restrictors on water sources throughout the resort that prevent wasteful use and preserve water .
  • Installing LED light fixtures wherever possible to save energy.

I am convinced that your website is convinced that weblog is very new. Probably I am going to bookmark your site. There are certainly impressive stories. Passion for sharing your website with us.

These are all great ideas, as the owner of a Dumpster Rental Service, I believe you should conserve all you can, when you can and keep our environment beautiful.

This is truly inspiring. I am trying to create a commercial paving service that is entirely off the grid as well.

Wow it must have taken a real jump start for this resort to accomplish this, but this is very admirable.

If they partner with a residential dumpster service that operates renewably that can be quite helpful as well.

This is so cool, I hope that people start to incorporate this renewable technology in other businesses like roll off dumpster and Roofer Elgin IL
