Hoteliers from throughout The Bahamas recently attended a luncheon launch of the Caribbean Hotel Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Action- Advanced Program (CHENACT -AP) at the British Colonial Hilton Hotel in Nassau to learn about the program and how they can participate.

BHTA Senior Vice President Glenn Sampert informed the audience that “energy-related costs represent 15 to 20 percent of a hotel’s operating budget; therefore, the program is timely and welcomed”.
