How Many Hot Dogs Can You Eat?

Jantzen is currently seeking a developer interested in making the North Slope Ski Hotel a reality. Eight large vertical axis wind turbines would be mounted on the rooftop of the hotel. The lower south-facing wall of the structure would be covered with a large array of the latest photovoltaic cells, which are made of flexible materials that will curve to match the shape of the building. These two features would supply most of the hotel’s electrical needs. “There’s a lot of technology out there right now that this would incorporate,” Jantzen says.
