PGA National Getting Greener
It isn’t just homes that are going green, but resorts are moving toward green technologies and conservation of all kinds as well. In Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, the PGA National homes that surround the PGA National resort and spa have a variety of green technologies on a per owner basis. Some owners have solar heating for their pools and some are completely solar while others aren’t. The resort sets a standard that meets the requirements of the Florida Department of Environmental Protections Green Lodging Program.
Launched in 2004, the program is a voluntary initiative but PGA National is quick to point out that they are a designated partner. The partnership designation is valid for three years after which properties are required to submit updates showing what progress they’ve made in Green technologies to remain qualified as partners.
