We are committed to being
Green at the Concord Suites!

You can enjoy your vacation AND reduce your environmental impact by staying at the Concord Suites.

Our Rooftop Solar Array

A Solar Celebration was held in June 2012 unveiling our $500,000 Rooftop Solar Array and additional “green” initiatives that are reducing operating expenses, keeping costs down for patrons and making the resort more environmentally sound and efficient.

The 434 rooftop panels, which provide 63% of the Concord Suites overall energy usage, also reduce the carbon emissions that impact the Concord’s surrounding environment by more than 60 tons annually.  The result is a greener, cleaner resort that benefits the Concord’s guests, employees and the environment.

How you can go Green
for your Vacation

  • Choose the Concord Suites for your vacation - a Green Hotel.
  • Turn off the AC/heat, lights and television when you leave the room.
  • Let housekeeping know that you would like to participate in the linen and towel reuse program.
  • Use our 2 Hydration Stations and refillable water bottles.
  • Open the drapes during the cooler months to let the sun naturally heat the room, and close the drapes in the summer to keep the room cool.
  • Take only maps or brochures necessary for your trip.
  • Look for recycling bins in your suite and throughout the hotel and dispose of items appropriately.
