Axpo is increasing its solar ambition in Switzerland by a factor of six: by 2030 the company plans to build solar plants with a capacity of more than 1.2 gigawatts. This is enough to meet the annual needs of more than 300,000 Swiss households.

The energy transition requires the development of renewable energies on all fronts. Large-scale solar plants play an important role.They are to be built both in the mountains and, in future, in the Swiss midlands.
Axpo has identified projects. One of these is "NalpSolar", a 10MW ground-mounted system that we want to build near the Nalps reservoir in the canton of Grisons at around 2,000 metres above sea level.
Axpo is already building more than two roof systems per day in Switzerland through its subsidiary CKW. It plans to build 600 roof systems per year. These include solar installations on family houses as well as large rooftop installations on industrial buildings.
In addition to rooftop systems, Axpo also plans to install large-scale ground-mounted systems in the midlands through its subsidiary CKW. CKW has already built ground-mounted plants at substations and plans to build more of these in the coming months and years.
