Santa Fe hotel goes all solar


SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A Santa Fe hotel is running on sunshine.

Guest rooms at the Hotel Santa Fe The Hacienda and Spa are now 100 percent solar-powered as part of an effort by the hotel and Stay.Solar, a company looking to bring solar power to the hotel industry.

There are no solar panels on the roof. Instead the energy is produced at large-scale solar installations elsewhere and is delivered to the hotel by smart-grid technology.

Officials say guests won't notice anything different - other than a sign on the hotel registration desk and in each room explaining the solar sourcing.

Hotel Santa Fe is the first hotel to convert to all-solar power with Stay.Solar.

The hotel is majority-owned by Picuris Pueblo, an indigenous community north of Santa Fe.
