Marriott in Greenfield to become 1st hotel in Lancaster County to go all solar

High Hotels Ltd

First 100% solar-powered Marriott in U.S.

From LancasterOnline

Russ Urban, the president of High Hotels, has long been intrigued by renewable energy sources such as solar power.

But there’s a problem with trying to meet a hotel’s energy needs entirely by using solar power — the typical hotel roof is too small to hold all the solar panels required.

So, to generate enough electricity for its Courtyard by Marriott hotel in the Greenfield Corporate Center, High Hotels will install 2,700 solar panels atop a large industrial building about a third of a mile away.

Best Efforts – Reasonable Efforts: Does It Matter?

High Associates Ltd

Almost all transaction documents have a provision or two requiring a party to exercise an effort to achieve an end. Sometimes the provision requires the party to exercise “best efforts” to do so. Sometimes the effort required is “reasonable efforts.” If the parties to the document are business entities, it is common to see the effort described as “commercially reasonable.” Are these efforts different? Is there an ascending level of these efforts? Does it matter which words are used to describe the efforts?

Employers are desperately seeking young, skilled workers, so why aren't more high school students attending the Lancaster County CTC?

From LancasterOnline


Community and school leaders say there’s still not enough CTC students here to meet the demands of the job market. And they say educators, counselors and parents should focus on crafting a college or career plan that align with the needs of the local workforce.


“LCCTC, along with other targeted trade schools, are providing the level and types of education and training that are in demand for the businesses that we operate and other businesses in the county,” said Darryl Gordon, spokesman for High Companies.
