Business Need

Jakson Inn decided to install a solar plant at its premises, with the intention of reducing operating costs while using cleaner, cheaper and sustainable energy sources. Over and above that, the decision is in line with the philosophy of Jakson Group, which has always been to propagate and use renewable sources of energy wherever possible.

As such, the hotel operations are highly energy-intensive. Most of the electricity is used for space cooling / heating, lighting and other amenities. Installing solar power will not only result in substantial savings in electricity costs but also aid in the quest for environment friendly hotel operations.
