MUI by Six Senses has announced the launch of the first phase of generating onsite solar energy at Six Senses Laamu.
This project has long been under development and is vital in Six Senses Laamu’s goal of having a minimal impact on the environment as possible.
The total capacity of the solar energy is 350 kWh generated from 1,174 marine-grade photovoltaic panels, to be installed on 18 rooftops at the Heart of the House.
The property is currently generating 80 kWh of solar energy which has produced 24,100 kWh of clean energy since the beginning of June. With this milestone of reducing its carbon footprint, it has saved 6,914 liters of diesel that did not have to be burned, equivalent to return 7 flights from London to Maldives.
The Maldives Underwater Initiative (MUI) is a multiple award-winning marine conservation initiative based at Six Senses Laamu, a 5-star resort in the Maldives. MUI consists of staff from the resort, as well as its three partner NGOs: The Manta Trust, Blue Marine Foundation and The Olive Ridley Project, all of whom work together to reach research, guest education and community outreach goals.
