Hilton Hotel in Ft Lauderdale goes green

Friday, March 7th, 2014

Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Beach Resort has distinguished itself as the destination for green lodging and events. Six UGE wind turbines now sit atop the hotel and Hilton couldn’t be more pleased!

“The turbines will help us visualize the hotel as a place to be conscious of energy use… it will help to highlight the importance of conserving electricity, and to start dialogue.”

Randy Gaines, VP of Engineering, Hilton Worldwide “The power generated by the wind turbines is enough to light this building year-round.”

Even the Mayor is thrilled with the addition to Fort Lauderdale’s beach front:

“It’s a great night for the City of Fort Lauderdale. This is about a corporate culture and a company that believes in giving back to the community.”
John P. Seiler, Mayor of Fort Lauderdale
