Motel 6 in Anderson, a Californian franchise property belongs to G6 Hospitability, is now sun-powered. With PV solar panels installed on the building’s rooftop, Motel 6 moves forward to generate 100% of energy through renewable resources.

"We are very proud to see our franchise partner's committed to finding innovative ways to improve our environment," says Dean Savas, EVP Franchise and International Development at G6 Hospitality. "This solar initiative aligns with our intention to embed sustainability into every part of the G6 Hospitality business operations."

The Motel 6 in Anderson, California is one of the two properties in the G6 Hospitality family in the state. Halcyon solar Construction installed more than 350 Hanwha Q-CELL 255W solar panels on the rooftop to directly convert the sunlight to electricity. The solar array is part of Motel 6’s sustainability programs, which include recycling, energy and water conservation, and the renovation of its entire network as well re-designing eco-friendly rooms.

"We are elated to have this year-long installation project completed, increasing the energy efficiency at our Anderson property," said Sam Patel, owner and operator of the Motel 6. "We know that sustainability is important to our guests and we are proud to be able to provide them a more eco-friendly environment during their stay."
