Hotel companies have a strong commercial imperative for addressing water use. Cost is an obvious factor: on average water accounts for 10% of utility bills in many hotels. Most hotels pay for the water they consume twice – first by purchasing fresh water and then by disposing of it as waste water. With over 17 million hotel rooms throughout the world, they fall prey to the same issues facing residential consumers. In many cases, hotels may generate greater waste since many remain unoccupied more frequently. If they are occupied, most occupants do not pay attention or notify the on-site staff of water leaks due to the short extent of their stay. If the following percentages, based off of case study savings, are applied to just the hotel industry, the resulting savings can be tremendous:
- 1% 290 Million gallons of water per year savings
- 10% 2.9 Billion gallons of water per year savings
- 25% 7.26 Billion gallons of water per year savings
- 50% 14.5 Billion gallons of water per year savings
- 100% 290 Billion gallons of water per year savings
Calculation: percentage * (case study yearly savings / case study units) * 17 million hotel rooms
