Carbon Lighthouse, a clean energy services company, has reached an agreement with Royal Lahaina Resort to save the company more than $1 million in energy costs over 10 years.

Carbon Lighthouse analyzed the resort’s specific energy use to uncover the property’s Efficiency Reserves, the wasted energy hidden and scattered across the resort’s systems. The company says it can guarantee the real dollar value of these energy savings, by staying engaged with the property and its on-site teams to deliver sustained building financial value, increased employee and guest comfort and reduced carbon emissions.

Tom Bell, president of Hawaiian Hotels and Resorts said he’s excited about the immediate and long-term results in energy savings and a reduction in the company’s carbon footprint.


Brenden Millstein, CEO and Co-founder of Carbon Lighthouse said, “Leaders like Royal Lahaina Resort are demonstrating that sustainability investments can not only have a positive impact on the environment but can be profitable as well.”

Carbon Lighthouse deployed dozens of sensors throughout the Royal Lahaina Resort to collect thousands of original data points. Plans going forward include implementing LED lighting at the resort, which translates to the reduction in over 1,700 barrels of oil from being imported into Hawai‘i.

The Royal Lahaina Resort joins a growing number of organizations, including A&B Properties, Parallel Capital Partners, which took over management of The Shidler Group buildings, Hawaiian Airlines, Aloha United Way, Elemental Excelerator and Ulupono Initiative who have been working with Carbon Lighthouse since 2016 to build a more sustainable and resilient Hawai‘i through profit-driven carbon elimination.
