DANVERS, MASS.—North American lighting maker OSRAM SYLVANIA announced the first to market 100-watt equivalent LED incandescent replacement offering long life and energy savings.

VINELAND, N.J.—Could the Ramada Vineland be the first property its size to receive a monthly electricity bill of $0? Possibly. That is what happened in October at the 102-room property in Vineland, N.J. Time will tell if the Ramada will maintain its “net zero hotel” status but NGL Property Management’s John Scipione, owner of the hotel with his family, believes it is possible. What lowered the hotel’s electricity bill from $15,000/month to $5,000/month over the last couple of years is a $2.6 million, 2,500-solar panel installation behind the property. It sits on three acres of land owned by NGL Property Management. It has been operational since February 2010. Replacing inefficient lighting throughout most of the property with fluorescent and LED lighting has gotten the hotel down to its net zero level. In fact, last month the hotel actually produced more electricity than it needed. “Getting to net zero is a goal we set a couple of years ago,” Scipione says.
