Wynn has announced that the $1.7 billion Wynn Resort in Everett will exceed state regulatory requirements for environmental sustainability and feature advanced green initiatives, including the use of solar power and rainwater harvesting.
The Wynn Resort in Everett is being designed to achieve a Gold or higher LEED ranking. The land remediation will advance the ongoing cleanup of the Mystic River and the resort will be one of the most environmentally friendly developments in the region with on-site efficiencies that include:
•Solar Power Generation—Onsite solar power and purchased renewable energy will provide 10 percent of the resort’s electrical needs.
•State-Of-The-Art Power Plant—Wynn’s advanced power plant will efficiently generate 20% of the resort’s electricity while also supplying hot water and heat for hotel and kitchen use, saving energy and reducing greenhouse gases.
•Rainwater Harvesting—Roof runoff will be the exclusive source of irrigation for the six-plus acres of lavish greenspace.
“The $30 million waterfront site cleanup and transformation will have a historic impact on the entire region, but our commitment to the environment will continue long after we’re open,” said Robert DeSalvio, president of Wynn Everett. “The Wynn Resort in Everett will be a model of sustainability and energy efficiency when we begin our day-to-day operations. It will bring to life Wynn’s deeply rooted principal of being an environmentally conscious and responsible leader in every community that we’re part of.”
