Who says luxury and sustainability can’t mix?
The upscale Finolhu Villas resort produces around a megawatt of energy per day from over 65,000 square feet of solar panels. Unlike most installation, the Finolhu panels are well-integrated with the architecture.
In addition to the solar panels, there is also a large bank of batteries to store excess energy for nights and cloudy days. Even with the added cost of the batteries, the entire system is expected to pay for itself in under 10 years.
If you’re thinking of staying at this resort you better start saving up as spending a week there can cost $10,000 USD!
