AMAG commissions second photovoltaic plant in Cham


Cham ZG – AMAG has installed the second photovoltaic system in Cham on the roof of the public AMAG parking garage. As with the AMAG Zug site, which will open in June 2023, the electricity will be produced for the company’s own use or fed into the public grid.

AMAG has connected the second solar plant on the roof of its own parking garage at Alte Steinhauserstrasse 5 in Cham to the local power grid. According to a media release from the car dealer, over 786 solar panels were installed on an area of 1599 square meters. This could generate 320,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually.

The public parking garage is operated by AMAG Parking AG. With the activation of the plant, the AMAG Group is continuing to work on the implementation of its sustainability and climate strategy. In June 2023, the car dealer had commissioned a photovoltaic roof system at AMAG Zug. As there, the electricity is to cover AMAG’s own needs. Any excess production is to be fed into the public power grid.

By 2025, 75,000 square meters of the roofs of AMAG plants are to be equipped with solar panels. The AMAG Group has gradually expanded its solar capacities in recent years. Thus, corresponding plants were built on the roofs of numerous companies. ce/heg
