Interests and Impacts

Improved net operating income, reduced operating expenditure

The Challenge:

Competition and the difficulties of starting a business will often make new owners reconsider their sustainability goals. A-Lodge was created by a couple of climbers who are very involved in their sports community and who wanted to minimize their ecological footprint by minimizing their energy use. To do that they needed to find safe and efficient lighting that also lowered their maintenance costs.

The Solution:

In the case of A-Lodge, big savings meant high-efficiency LED lighting, and Ecosystems was able to find rebates and incentives covering 25% of their cost. A-Lodge also realized the comfort and quality provided by LEDs would maintain the high standards and quality experience that their customers had come to expect.


With 25% of the cost covered, the lighting paid for itself in one year, so every dollar of savings since that first year is a dollar the owners do not waste on energy. Ecosystems is currently helping the owners of A-Lodge navigate and implement a long-term plan that includes bathroom fixtures, HVAC, and windows.
