Our passerelle now produces electricity
Part of our «Cause-We-Care» fund is earmarked for investments in the hotel's own sustainable projects. From this we have now been able to finance the new photovoltaic system along the south front of the passerelle.
In spring 2023, we installed 96 photovoltaic panels along our passerelle to Engadin Bad Scuol. The sun-exposed location of the passerelle offers an ideal site for this approximately 135 m2 system. With our new photovoltaic system we can produce 13'000 kWh of electricity per year. This corresponds to the annual consumption of three single-family houses with four people each. The saving through this electricity production is 6'000 kg CO2 per year. With an investment of CHF 130,000 we have made a further contribution to a sustainable future.
From the «Cause-We-Care» fund, another part flows into the cooperation for clean drinking water for schools and households in Uganda. You can read more about this in our separate article.
