The golf and thermal bath region of Stegersbach is focused on development which is both sustainable for the climate, and which protects the environment. On the roof of the Allegria Resort Stegersbach by Reiters, a 45kWp photovoltaic system was installed and put into operation. “The objective of the responsible tourism operators in the golf and thermal bath region of Stegersbach is to make the region a model example for climate protection and renewable energy. With this project, we make the significance of this development visible for our guests” says engineer Andreas Schneemann, model regional manager.
The system installed on the hotel roof of the Allegria Resort with a surface area of approximately 450 m² and output of 450 kWp enables the generation of a regional and sustainable supply of approximately 50,000 kWh of green power. This corresponds to an annual energy usage of approximately 10 four-person households.
The guests can monitor the system parameters via display in the hotel foyer such as, for example, the current level of solar power being generated, the CO2 emissions which have been saved or the monthly and annual performance statistics. In addition to the hotel PV system, photovoltaic systems on the roofs of the golf cart garages in Stegersbach and Neudauberg are currently in preparation. The cart batteries are therefore charged in an environmentally friendly way with the assistance of solar energy.
Stegersbach: a model region for climate and energy
Initiated by the association Stegersbach Tourism, the local government authorities of Bocksdorf, Burgauberg-Neudauberg, Olbendorf, Ollersdorf, Rauchwart, Rohr and Stegersbach joined together in 2013, along with leading businesses from the region, to establish the “Klima- & Energie-Modellregion Thermenregion Stegersbach” (“Climate & Energy Model Region Thermal Region Stegersbach”). Energy efficient and climate protecting projects are realised in the region which help to shape the energy system of the future, and establish the region as an example to others.
