Photovoltaic system on the roof of a leisure centre


The StuBay leisure centre offers a sports and adventure pool with sauna facilities, a freestyle hall, a fitness centre and restaurant area on over 6,000 m². This goes hand in hand with a very high demand for electricity, which means that the StuBay Leisure Centre is particularly affected by the energy crisis and high electricity prices. "As a forward-looking company that wants to continue to offer our guests an exceptional swimming experience for the next twenty years, we need to make the switch to significantly reduce our energy costs and become more independent of the energy market," says Managing Director Georg Schantl, explaining the decision to invest in solar power.


The vacant roof areas of the StuBay leisure centre were used to expand the existing photovoltaic system with a 251 kWp system. This will cover 30 % of the indoor swimming pool's annual electricity consumption in future. A special solution from the substructure manufacturer Aerocompact was used to meet the special requirements of the green roofs. The total output of the photovoltaic system is more than 300 kWp, generating up to 350,000 kilowatt hours of electricity and saving around 22 tonnes of CO2 per year. The energy produced and directly consumed is free of charge; the StuBay leisure centre receives extra remuneration for any surplus energy.
