The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas Completes Multimillion Project to Reduce Carbon Footprint

KAUA‘I, HAWAI‘I – The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas, located on the island of Kaua‘i, announced the completion of a multimillion-dollar project to install a cogeneration plant and reduce its carbon footprint in the Hawaiian Islands. The cogen plant will generate electricity and steam for the 18.5 acre Kaua‘i hotel, powering the resort’s eight buildings, heating water in guest villas as well as the resort’s four pools and three whirlpools. It is the first instance in the Hawaiian Islands where a cogen system has the capacity to generate up to 100% of a resort’s energy needs.

Kaua‘i’s primary source of electrical generation is fueled by imported diesel, and combined with the islands’ remote geographic location, Kaua‘i has the highest energy costs in the nation. The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas, with 346 villa accommodations, is among the largest resorts on the island and thus one of the largest consumers of energy.

The resort’s new system is known as a Combined Cooling, Heat and Power (CCHP) system which utilizes five highly efficient Capstone Turbine generators for a total capacity of 1 megawatt. The system captures the byproduct of heat energy through a large heat exchanger that is tied to a closed loop hot water recirculation system, which pipes water to an absorption chiller. In lieu of using electrical energy, the chiller uses heat energy to produce chilled water for air conditioning the resort’s two-story
