Solar energy and charging points – E-Mobility will help Kläppen Ski Resort become fossil-free by 2030

Borlänge-based Soltech company E-Mobility and Kläppen Ski Resort are now collaborating. An agreement between the companies has been reached which awards E-Mobility the privilege of installing solar panels and smart electric vehicle (EV) charging points for the thousands of cabin owners at the ski resort and the corporate headquarters of Kläppen Ski Resort. The order is initially valued at SEK 14 million, but can potentially amount to SEK 24 million during the contract period.

E-Mobility is the Soltech Group company with expertise in large-scale EV charging points and charging infrastructure. The company has signed a three-year agreement with Kläppen Ski Resort, Sweden's largest family-owned ski resort with 38 slopes and 21 ski lifts.

The agreement, effective as of August this year, means that E-Mobility is offering the cabin owners at Kläppen the opportunity to install solar panels and EV charging points, where E-Mobility delivers technical consultation, installation and continual support. All installations are also prepared to accommodate energy storage in the future. The company will also install solar panels and EV charging points at the planned new headquarter of Kläppen Ski Resort, expected to be finished in 2025, which will house 55 employees and provide close to 100 EV charging points.

– We are very happy to have gained the trust of a ski resort that really puts its sustainability ambitions to the test. Now we look forward to rolling up our sleeves and helping Kläppen's cabin owners get access to both smart EV charging and solar energy solutions, says Maja Pettersson, responsible for solar energy at E-Mobility.

An important service for both the climate and cottage owners
Kläppen Ski Resort has high sustainability ambitions for its operations and has previously participated in several environmental projects. Now the ski resort is taking its sustainability work to the next level through the long-term collaboration with E-Mobility, which will help cabin owners interested in sustainability reduce their environmental impact.

– We think it is extremely important to think long-term and sustainably. Sustainability work must permeate all daily work, and with E-Mobility's solutions we continue in the right direction. For us, it is a natural part to think sustainably, both in the short and above all in the long term. We are a family-owned company and for us sustainability is part of our core values and our DNA. We want to develop the company and in the future hand over a sustainable facility to the next generation Eriksson, says Gustav Eriksson, CEO of Kläppen Ski Resort.
