UtilityTree‘s insight:

Hilton Worldwide wanted to attract sustainability-minded customers to its resorts, both for personal lodging and green events. By installing six UGE wind turbines on its roof, the Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Beach Resort distinguished itself as the destination for green lodging and events. The six wind turbines, combined with future plans for solar PV, offset a significant portion of the resort’s energy usage.  Hilton Worldwide’s energy program manager expressed at the ribbon cutting,  “You can not put a price on the PR and marketing benefits of on-site renewable energy.”
