In the Swiss vacation region of Flims Laax Falera, the world's first bike trail is being built using 100% renewable energy. Among other things, Velosolutions is using SUNCAR's battery-powered electric excavators, which are charged at the power distribution of the snowmaking system for the slopes.

In tourism regions, more and more emphasis is being placed on sustainability, as many vacationers are booking vacations more consciously. For years, the quiet and emission-free electric excavators have been appreciated in car-free mountain regions, such as Saas-Fee. Now the excavators are also being used away from settlements and roads. The only prerequisite is a sufficiently strong power connection nearby.

Wherever one of the widely available 400V CEE sockets is available, an emission-free construction site can be considered. Residents and tourists, construction workers and even nature will appreciate the low-noise and low-emission construction machines. Ultimately, battery-electric machines and vehicles are also less costly to maintain. It is up to everyone, whether public or private clients, to use appropriate criteria to work towards lower emissions and greater sustainability.
