Kestenholz photovoltaic system

Following a construction period of three months, one of Switzerland’s largest photovoltaic systems was officially put into service in January 2015. The system was installed on the roofs of two industrial buildings in the municipality of Kestenholz. A total of 4,549 photovoltaic modules with a surface area of 7,399 m2 generate 1,130,000 kWh of electricity per year. This is equivalent to the electricity consumption of approximately 250 Swiss households.
