Cham ZG – AMAG has installed a further photovoltaic system on a roof at its Cham site. The electricity produced is used for the company’s own needs. A second is expected to be installed there this year, with another in the planning stages.
AMAG Zug now also has a photovoltaic system (PVA). On 1301 square meters, 667 solar modules are expected to produce 263,040 kilowatt hours of electricity per year. According to a media release, this will be used on site for the car dealer’s own needs. Another PVA is planned on the roof of the VW showroom at AMAG Zug and on the public AMAG parking garage in Cham.
PVA has already been installed on roofs of AMAG plants in the past two years, including in Basel, Wettswil ZH, Lupfig AG, Chur, Baden AG, Etoy VD, Oftringen AG, Buchrain LU, Winterthur and Maienfeld GR. “We are proud that we are now also one of the companies within the AMAG family that has a photovoltaic system and can thus produce a large proportion of the electricity we use ourselves,” CEO Herbert Sommerhalder is quoted as saying.
By 2025, the AMAG Group will have fitted a total of around 75,000 square meters of its roof area with solar panels as part of its sustainability and climate strategy. This corresponds to an area of about ten football fields. This will enable the company to produce more than 20 percent of its current electricity consumption itself, according to the company. ce/mm
