Maggia storage power stations
The Maggia power stations harness the power of water from the Maggia and Brenno basins, using the drop between the Gries reservoir and the lake of Langensee. The gross height of approximately 2200 meters is the highest gradient used in Switzerland by a chain of high-capacity storage power stations.
