Motel 6 Energy-Saving Incentive Program Rewards Efficient Motels With Renovated Break Rooms

Motel 6, known for providing guests with a clean, comfortable room and great service for the lowest price of any national chain, announces the winners of the brand’s 2010 “Phoenix My Break Room” energy-saving program. This unique employee incentive program challenged Motel 6 team members at corporate-owned locations in North America to reduce energy consumption at their motels over a six-month period.

One location in each of the brand’s ten operational regions earned the prize of a renovated break room, modeled after the award-winning Motel 6 “Phoenix” room design. Winners were determined based on the percentage reduction of energy consumption (kilowatt hours used) from the previous year, taking into account weather and occupancy variances. Additionally, Motel 6 recognized the “Most Valuable Properties,” which maintained electricity savings before and throughout the program, by awarding a flat screen television for their break room. When the competition culminated in October 2010, the company had reduced electricity consumption by $233,000.
