Photovoltaics

In photovoltaics, solar radiation is converted into electrical energy by solar cells directly and emission-free.

Advantages:

  • Price reductions have made new photovoltaic electricity less expensive than any other power plant technology today.
  • Switzerland’s buildings alone are potentially able to produce more electricity than we are using today.
  • Photovoltaic systems produce electricity over a period of almost 30 years, without pollution or noise, and at minimal maintenance costs.
