Staber car dealership - the most sustainable car dealership in Upper Carinthia

The Staber car dealership is a household name in Upper Carinthia. After all, the company has been around since 1948 and the Volkswagen brand has been there since 1952. Following extensive modernization, Autohaus Staber is a pioneer in energy efficiency and sustainability. A total of around 4.5 million euros was invested in 2020/2021. At the locations in Spittal and Obervellach, customers can immerse themselves in the modern world of Volkswagen and Audi.

The body shop and paint shop were newly built in Spittal. Around one third of the paint shop's waste heat is reused in the company. This recovery significantly reduces the heating requirements of the company. The total area in Spittal was expanded by 17%, the enclosed space by 38%. Despite this expansion, the heating requirements have fallen by 75% compared with the original plant. The extended facilities also include an tire warehouse extension, the expansion of office space including cloakrooms, as well as new sanitary facilities and generous social and recreation rooms. Vehicle testing has also been made more efficient. A fully digitalized test lane enables rapid vehicle testing ("Pickerl"). The car wash was also renovated, reducing water consumption from 120 to just 35 liters per wash cycle. The efficient water treatment system correspondinglyreduces energy costs.

Furthermore, a 200 kWp photovoltaic system was installed in Spittal - and a 105 kWp system in Obervellach. The plants cover a large part of the electricity required at the sites. Likewise, electric vehicles are charged with solar power. The charging stations in Spittal (up to 150 kW) and Obervellach (up to 75 kW) are also open to the public. The charging stations and the energy concept were supplied by MOON. The complete billing system for the charging stations also comes from MOON. Green electricity is always used for charging - always from the photovoltaic system during the day, and the remainder with 100% green electricity from the regional energy supplier. Environmentally friendly power generation ensures sustainable mobility. "Photovoltaic systems and electrically powered vehicles are now state of the art and the most ecological form of motorized locomotion," emphasizes Rupert Haslinger, MOON project manager.

Photovoltaic systems are an easy way to generate electricity for your own vehicle. In times of rising electricity and energy prices in general, the "filling station on your own roof" is a hedge against high "fuel costs". Your own photovoltaic system allows you to charge an electric vehicle at around 1 to 2 euros per 100 kilometers. Vehicles charged with green electricity therefore make ecological and economic sense. You can convince yourself of this at any time at Autohaus Staber.
