Here at Rydges Newcastle we have our future front of mind and we are doing our little bit to make a big difference in this world.
Our owner Dr Jerry Schwartz is the proud owner of three solar farms. Solar Farm 1 is online and supply’s five times the amount of electricity that is used at our sister property Rydges Resort Hunter Valley. The hotel uses One Megawatt per hour and the other Four Megawatts are being fed back into the grid to power some of the other 13 Schwartz Family Co. Hotels. Solar Farm 2 is about to come online which will supply another 5 Megawatts per hour and Solar Farm 3 is in the planning stages.
