Among these, power or electricity was found to be a major cost contributor. Further analyses revealed that there possibilities the use of electricity can be cut to an optimum level. Reduction of the consumption of power in the hotel would sufficiently reduce operational cost and thereby increase revenue.
Based on the problem identified, it is proposed that a power cost saving plan will be developed and implemented. The first step is energy audit which would identify the trend and practices in electrical consumption in all section of the hotel and equate them to the volume of users. Once the information is at hand, areas where reduction can be implemented will be identified. Automated systems will be used instead of manual operations. Electronic devices that detect the optimum level of power needed in a particular area must be installed. For instance, a sensor automatically shuts off a light when there are no more users, etc.
The solution will be implemented in few selected area to test the effectiveness. The data prior to implementation and during implementation will be recorded for validation purposes. The affectivity of the systems installed will be evaluated after six months of operation by comparing the consumption rate before and after using the systems. Consumption index will be obtained by dividing power consumption against total persons (consumers and employees). A lower consumption index would mean positive result. If the system is found to be efficient it will be replicated throughout the entire hotel systems.
