What’s believed to be the world’s first solar-powered T Bar lift will help make a new ski lift connection between Westendorf and the rest of the SkiWelt this winter. As reported at SkiRebel, the new connection involves the T Bar lift, a bridge over the main road at Brixen, and a new eight passenger gondola to make the ascent up to Westendorf.
The ski tow is powered by a photovoltaic system which even in poor weather has enough power to keep the lift running smoothly. The lift has been aptly named, “Sonnenlift.”
Any extra speed during periods of high sun spot activity?
