The Siwash Lake Ranch is truly off-grid. Its a luxury dude ranch outside Kamloops, B.C and one of the most eco-friendly destinations in Canada. It’s a small, operation in the BC foothills near Kamloops, running entirely off the grid on solar power and a backup generator.
Patrons care about energy consumption and waste, and with the cost of energy and garbage disposal rising, going green isn’t just good public relations, it’s good for the bottom line.
Riding this wave, the Hotel Association of Canada is promoting a “Green Key” program that rates hotels on a scale of one to five keys, based on a survey of everything from what they’re doing with their wastewater, to how much power they’re using.
