Going Green At Eagle Ridge Resort and SpaWe are extremely excited to share our "Green Initiatives" that began in the spring of 2019. Our new ownership understands the need to continue to make improvement to the resort and at the same time be environmentally friendly. Our first “Green Initiative” is our Solar Energy project in partnership with Eagle Point Solar. While there are huge benefits for the resort, we are also providing a huge benefit to the environment.
Solar energy is clean, renewable, and abundant. By using solar electricity instead of electricity generated with fossil fuels, our resort will reduce its’ carbon footprint and contribute to a culture of sustainability.
