AMAG commissions second solar plant in Zuchwil


Cham ZG/Zuchwil SO – AMAG Solothurn has commissioned a solar plant with an output of 153 kilowatts peak in Zuchwill. The plant is already the second at the Solothurn site. By 2025, the AMAG Group plans to equip around 75,000 square meters of roof surface with solar panels throughout Switzerland.

In mid-December, the AMAG Group commissioned a photovoltaic system with a peak output of 153 kilowatts at its Zuchwil site, the Group, which is primarily active in the automotive trade, announced in a press release. By 2025, AMAG plans to equip around 75,000 square meters of space on AMAG plants with solar panels. This would enable the Group to cover over a fifth of its electricity requirements from its own production.

The 369 solar panels now installed in Zuchwil are the Group’s second system at the Solothurn site. A similarly large plant had already been put into operation at the end of June. “Our first photovoltaic system has already proved very successful and is meeting our expectations,” said Raphael Biberstein, Managing Director of AMAG Solothurn, in the press release. “It fills us with pride to be able to generate the electricity we need ourselves with these two systems.”

The AMAG Group has already installed further photovoltaic systems in Basel, Wettswil ZH, Lupfig AG, Chur, Baden AG, EtoyVD, Oftringen AG, Buchrain LU, Winterthur, Maienfeld GR, Cham, Noville VD, La Tour-de-Trême FR, Châtelaine GE, Lengwil TG and Lugano. They cover a total area of around 34,000 square meters. ce/hs
