Photovoltaic installation Resource-efficient cable car operation on the Grünberg

As a cable car company, we also focus on sustainability and a resource-efficient handling of the environment, which is why we are constantly trying to develop further in this area.

At the end of 2021, the Grünberg cable car began installing a photovoltaic system. Over 90 solar modules were installed on the roofs of the cable car stations. 

The PV systems at the Grünberg in Gmunden generate a total of approximately 37,000 kWh per year, with a self-consumption rate of over 80% for both systems. Through grid-parallel operation, the excess energy generated is fed into the interconnected grid. This has not only a sustainable but also an economic benefit.

In May 2023, the photovoltaic system was expanded and the roof of the entrance to the summer toboggan run was also equipped with it. A total of 90 modules were installed. With another 38 kilowatt peak, the total with the cable car stations on the Grünberg is now already 70 kilowatt peak!

Rupert Schiefer convinces himself personally of the successful extension on the roof of the summer toboggan run and checks the power generation directly on the mobile phone.
