Solar Water Heating System Installed at Orange Tree Golf Resort

The Orange Tree Golf Resort in Scottsdale, AZ, one of Arizona's finest luxury golf resort destinations, recently had the Phoenix-based company, Easy Energy, install a solar water heating system. The solar water heating system is designed to offset the natural gas usage in the nine large boilers throughout the Scottsdale golf resort.

It is estimated that the new system will save 465 tons of CO2 annually, which equates to planting 34,500 trees each year. The new system provides all 160 Orange Tree Golf Resort guest rooms and on-site laundry facilities with water heated by the Arizona sun.

“Solar water heating is the most efficient way to capture solar sunlight,” says Brian Bartel, President of Easy Energy. “With over 300 days of abundant sunshine available every year, the Phoenix area is ideal for implementing widespread solar technology."

The installation of solar is one of several initiatives the Orange Tree Golf Resort has undertaken to become more sustainable. Bruce Hamm, General Manager of the Orange Tree Golf Resort, says the benefits are two fold. “The solar water heating system has decreased our overall energy costs, and guests appreciate our efforts to be more environmentally conscious.”

Recently awarded a finalist for the Scottsdale Green by Design Award from the Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Orange Tree Golf Resort in Scottsdale, AZ is recognized by the community for its green efforts in reducing non-recyclable waste, reducing water usage and implementing a recycling program on property.
