Own photovoltaic system: covers 50% of the total energy requirement
If you stay at Quinta Alegre, your time here will be climate friendly. Because our resource-saving hotel concept inhibits more CO2 than we emit. In order to help us cover our energy requirements we have incorporated a photovoltaic system, which generates 20,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year. The entire plant includes various components
- 84 Modules
- 16 lithium batteries from world market leader BYD
- 2 inverters from Kosta
- 3 air / heat pumps from LG
- 30 solar collectors for hot water
We power 50% of our heating requirements ourselves. We heat rooms and public areas as well as the pool, generate hot water and supply our hotel's electric cars via the fast charging stations on our property.
Think resource-conserving energy use
In the winter months, our fireplace not only ensures a cozy atmosphere in the hotel bar, but also warms the integrated water pipelines on the way. We also save energy in our recently completely modernised hotel kitchen with its induction cookers.
The goal of our energy concept: Away from the gas and focused on a "positive carbon footprint", we are one of the few hotels in Madeira that have achieved this.
