World’s first zero carbon 5-star hotel doubles as Bali solar power plant

July 22, 2011 |

The Bali Net Zero Hotel Resort and Spa—designed by Christine Hadiningrat and Sauter Carbon Offset Design—is the world’s first zero carbon five-star hotel. The hotel provides 2.5 MW of electricity per day from a solar cell array installed on four floors of roof. Certified as a Carbon Offset Project, the hotel generates enough electricity during sunlight hours to power the hotel and the local community through the night, eliminating the need of a storage system. Profits from sales of the hotel-generated electricity to the community will be used to help generate power for local schools and public centers.
