Brisbane hotel cuts hot water costs by 70% with solar

While recently researching solar hot water, I came across this story about The Glen Hotel in Brisbane, which this year built a new 44-room accommodation wing.   They decided to take their energy usage and ongoing running costs seriously. This resulted in the installation of insulation, LED lighting, energy efficient air conditioning as well as a solar hot water system.  The Apricus installation provides hot water to all 44 rooms, and is expected to reduce hot water energy usage by 70% or more!
