As a locally rooted business enterprise, we support a substantial part of the economic development in St. Moritz and Celerina. It’s not only the jobs or the public municipal taxes that contribute here. We assume responsibility for the inhabitants and the region through targeted support for various sponsorship projects, events, clubs and groups.
We sponsor selected projects in the fields of sports, culture, environment and business. During our engagement, there are two important aspects at play: on the one hand, connectedness with the local supply area; and on the other hand, obtaining an increased level of brand awareness. Sponsorship activities help achieve this goal by demonstrating to our customers that our activities involve far more than just delivering kilowatt hours of energy.

The element of water and the production of electricity link the communities of Celerina and St. Moritz, and since 1904 these two components come together in the winter operation of the St. Moritz – Celerina bobsleigh track. The ice track in Upper Engadine is the oldest bobsleigh track in the world as well as the last remaining natural ice slope on Earth. Other tracks throughout Europe, North America and Japan need to be artificially iced because they are not located at suitable altitudes. More information can be found at www.olympia-bobrun.ch.

Since 1948, the gymnastics club has organised the “Across Celerina”, one of the oldest running sports events in The Canton of Graubünden. Over the decades, the "Across Celerina" has gone through numerous changes. In the early days, it consisted of a run around Celerina. Later, the event was moved to the centre of the village and geared primarily towards children. Amidst a great atmosphere and cheered on by hordes of spectators, the rounds are completed with an American flair. Additionally, a 10-kilometre race and a walking event for adults have been held for several years now.
