The expanded range of solar solutions enables end customers to efficiently and economically generate electricity and to flexibly use renewable energy, and underlines the increasing significance of integrated, innovative concepts for smart homes. With the expansion of the cooperation with IKEA, Alpiq is pursuing the strategy of further expanding its market presence in the field of energy services.


Helion Solar is market leader for photovoltaic and energy storage systems

Helion Solar, which is part of the Alpiq Group, can position itself as the Swiss market leader for the planning, implementation and maintenance of photovoltaic systems and energy storage systems. Alpiq’s goal is to use the partnership to heighten the awareness of an even wider customer base for solar energy and to support households with their entry into the world of clean and simple energy generation. In addition, by using intelligent control technology to link the solar system, house battery and charging station for e-cars, the Swiss market leader can offer its customers a complete energy efficiency package from a single source.
