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 will reduce operating expenses, keeping costs down for patrons and making the resort more environmentally sound and efficient.

The 434 rooftop panels, which provide 60% of the Concord Suites overall energy usage, will 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.
