ABSTRACT
The article discusses some forms of alternative energy sources, their limitations and how they can affect hotels in the U.S. The author cites two types of energy including renewable such as wood, solar energy and hydropower, and non-renewable such as fossil fuels, geothermal energy and nuclear fission. He stresses that hotels' dependence on ethanol as alternative to gasoline may cause increases in the price of some food products. In addition, he believes that sources of energy are not constant.
