Project Highlights

Hilton Worldwide wanted to attract sustainability-minded customers to its resorts, both for personal lodging and green events. By installing six UGE wind turbines on its roof, the Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Beach Resort distinguished itself as the destination for green lodging and events. The six wind turbines, combined with future plans for solar PV, offset a significant portion of the resort’s energy usage.


"The turbines will help us visualize the hotel as a place to be conscious of energy use… it will help to highlight the importance of conserving electricity, and to start dialogue."

Randy Gaines, VP of Engineering, Hilton Worldwide


"It's a great night for the City of Fort Lauderdale. This is about a corporate culture and a company that believes in giving back to the community."   

John P. Seiler, Mayor of Fort Lauderdale
