Hyatt Regency Enrolls in PowerPay! WNY Energy Conservation Program
Buffalo, NY, October 22- Hyatt Regency, located in Buffalo, NY, is pleased to announce its enrollment in Energy Curtailment Specialists, Inc.'s (ECS) demand response program, PowerPay! WNY. The Hyatt has agreed to participate in the program in order to earn extra revenue for reducing their energy usage just a few times a year.
PowerPay! WNY comes into effect in times of peak demand, usually on the hottest days of the summer, in which the hotel will cut back their electricity usage to help keep demand and energy prices low, as well as avoid peak power plants from being built. ECS' program was designed in an effort to help WNY businesses earn money during the economic hardship and help them become energy conscious at the same time.
"Hyatt Regency has joined the ranks of other high-end hotels by enrolling in PowerPay! WNY," said Michael Marsch, general manager for Hyatt Regency Buffalo. "We were really interested in being a part of 'green' New York and ECS' program was the best way for us to achieve that goal."
In order to make the most of its participation in PowerPay! WNY, when an event is called, the hotel plans to pre-cool the air conditioning in common areas, reduce lighting and enforce a housekeeping plan to turn off lights and air conditioning when rooms are unoccupied.
"We are excited that the Hyatt Regency has chosen to participate in PowerPay! WNY," said Paul Tyno, executive vice president, program development of ECS. "We are pleased that they have decided to give back to the community and become a part of 'green' New York."
