Canareef Resort Maldives just took a bold move towards embracing a more sustainable future for the resort. The resort has just announced its initiative to install 720 solar panels on the property, marking a significant step in reducing its carbon footprint.

The final installation process for the solar panels is scheduled to be completed within one month. With this, Canareef Resort Maldives will be taking a major step towards environmental stewardship and responsible tourism practices. Upon completion, the solar panels are projected to generate an impressive 400kw of power. This will be a major contribution towards the resort’s energy needs.

This initiative extends beyond the guest area, as the solar panels cover the resort as well. With the solar panels, Canareef Resort Maldives will have a renewable energy source for various operations throughout the resort. In addition to this being a step towards sustainable tourism in the country, this will also integrate sustainability into the guest experience.
