Even before construction of the Canal Park Lodge started, developers made decisions that took into account sustainability and environmentally friendly efforts.
This Duluth Hotel is perfectly suited for the pristine shores of Lake Superior. Its rustic timbers and stonework blend right into the scenic North Shore setting.
The Canal Park Lodge worked closely with Minnesota Power’s Conservation Improvement Program and its energy consultants in the design and construction process. Consultants helped identify high efficiency packaged terminal air conditioner (PTAC) units for heating and cooling the guest rooms. The Lodge’s PTACs feature electric heat pumps that capture heat and pump it outdoors during the summer to keep rooms cool and comfortable. All the exterior and interior lighting is ENERGY STAR™ - qualified.
The Lodge uses a computerized climate control system for our public spaces. The system automatically controls fan speeds, dampers, and temperature settings so optimal heating and cooling can take place in this precast concrete building.
Some of the above efforts were featured on Minnesota Power Minute.
