Only green electricity is used in our lodges. We completely refrain from using fossil energies such as oil and gas.
Every lodge is equipped with an air heat pump, a large hot water tank, and a wall-to-wall floor heating system. Everything to ensure a maximum level of comfort and luxury while exclusively using green electricity at the same time.
We cooperate with the Hamburg-based Sunnic company. Sunnic specialises in the production and marketing of renewable energies. All of the electricity used in our Gl├╝ck in Sicht premises is 100% green electricity that we procure from Sunnic.
At the same time as Gl├╝ck in Sicht was being constructed, we also built a large solar park at the city limits of Gl├╝cksburg. Approximately 16,000 m┬▓ in size, the park consists of 5,544 highly efficient solar modules. With a capacity of 1,540 kW, the solar park produces 1,389 MWh per year. That corresponds roughly to the electricity demand of 350 households and approximately 7 times the electricity required at Gl├╝ck in Sicht.
Sunnic is in charge of the distribution as well: That means that we supply Sunnic with pure photovoltaic electricity from Gl├╝cksburg ÔÇô whenever the sun is shining or there is sufficient daylight. And in return, Sunnic provides us with pure green electricity for our Gl├╝ck in Sicht premises around the clock. This concept shows that state-of-the-art technology makes it possible today to live ecologically without compromising on comfort and convenience.
Heat pumps are technical devices that can convert electricity into heat in a highly efficient manner. The heat pump essentially ÔÇťpumpsÔÇŁ heat from a lower temperature level to a higher temperature level. For the ÔÇťpumpÔÇŁ, i.e. the compressor, a heat pump needs energy, in our case, green electricity from Sunnic.
Other energy sources such as oil or gas are not needed.
