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.
