Our environmental commitment
New: We offer a free charging station for electric vehicles up to 32 kW for our hotel guests.
Saving resources has always been an important topic on the family Schwaigers’ agenda. In the early 1990s, we have already installed a solar heating system. In the mid-1990s we have implemented a program in order to optimise the energy consumption and regulate the power balance.
In the beginning of 2002 we have installed two block heating stations to supply heat and power.
Since 2006, the complete hotel complex is heated via our own wood chips heating system. In 2007 also the neighbouring households have been connected to the heating supply. This means avoiding about 250,000 kg CO² per year.
In 2009 a further distant heating supply for the southern part of Glonn (“Glonn Süd”) has been installed. In co-operation with the municipality of Glonn and GEWEG KU company, the works on expanding the district heating network are still ongoing.
In 2010 the hotel was equipped with a solar power plant generating 50 kWP power. This means avoiding about 40,000 kg CO² per year.
Additionally, we have always been using energy efficient devices and equipment. We have also constantly adapted the energetic insulation of the building to the latest standards. Furthermore, we offer a free charging station for electric vehicles up to 32 kW for our hotel guests.
Domestic hot water supply is regulated via the model “Sandleranlage”, i.e. we only heat the water that is needed and therefore no storage of hot water reserves is necessary.
