AMAG expands photovoltaics


Cham ZG/Vernier GE – Mobility provider AMAG has commissioned a new photovoltaic plant in Vernier near Geneva. With the commissioning, AMAG is continuing the company’s sustainability and climate strategy.

AMAG has commissioned a new photovoltaic plant at its Châtelaine site in Vernier near Geneva. According to a company media release, a total of 891 solar panels have been installed on the roof of the building for Audi, Seat and Cupra, covering an area of 1737 square meters. In total, the new photovoltaic plant in Vernier is expected to be able to produce around 400,000 kilowatt hours of energy per year. This is used at the site itself for its own needs. Any excess production is to be fed into the public power grid, the statement said.

“The fact that we have also received a photovoltaic system fills me with great joy and pride,” Francine Varga, the managing director of AMAG Châtelaine, is quoted as saying in the release. “I consider it eminently sensible and sustainable to harness the power of the sun to meet most of the electricity needs at our facility.”

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/ww
