04 Feb DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and Conference Centre Regina Announces First of its kind Partnership with Canada’s Leading Green Energy Provider
Regina, SK, February 4 2016— The DoubleTree by HiltonTM Hotel and Conference Centre Regina is excited to announce a new partnership with Bullfrog Power to provide clean, green energy for the hotel’s meeting and conferences rooms and three Hilton HHonors floors. The partnership is the first in Saskatchewan between a hotel and the green energy provider.
“We have ambitious goals to be an industry leader in sustainability,” says Mike Wurster, General Manager, DoubleTree by HiltonTM Hotel and Conference Centre Regina. “As the first hotel in Saskatchewan to choose Bullfrog Power’s green electricity, this partnership is a clear demonstration of our commitment to reduce our impact on the environment.”
Bullfrog Power’s generators put 100 per cent clean, pollution-free electricity onto the grid to match the amount of conventional power that DoubleTree by Hilton Regina’s meeting rooms, conference rooms and three Hilton HHonors floors use. Across Canada, Bullfrog Power’s green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power, sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities.
“We’re proud of the leadership role DoubleTree by Hilton is taking in the province’s hospitality sector,” says Steve Giblin, President and CEO of SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts. “This partnership is one more way we are able to offer our guests a more environmentally sustainable stay as part of our commitment to create a truly rewarding hotel experience.”
An industry leader in sustainability, The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and Conference Centre Regina was recently awarded a 4 key rating by Green Key, a globally recognized Eco-Rating program. The hotel was also the first in Regina to introduce Tesla car charging stations and has implemented a roof-top garden, incentivized Go-Green Room initiative, filtered water stations to reduce the use of bottled water and implemented a comprehensive recycling program.
