BE Netz builds biggest photovoltaic plant in German-speaking Switzerland

 

The biggest photovoltaic plant in German-speaking Switzerland is being built on the roof of the ALDI SUISSE distribution center in Perlen by Lucerne energy company BE Netz.

BE Netz has won its biggest contract. The Lucerne energy company is building a new 64,000 kilowatt peak solar plant on the roof of the ALDI SUISSE distribution center in Perlen, according to a statement. Covering a surface area of 44,500 square meters, the plant will be around the size of six football pitches.


ALDI SUISSE is renting its Perlen roof space to the Basel energy company aventron, which is to install sustainable energy provision in the distribution center and region.


Building work is scheduled to begin shortly after the summer holidays, with the plant set to feed into the grid by the end of November. “Our technicians are looking forward to the logistical and organizational challenge of installing more than 20,000 solar modules and 500 kilometres of solar cables for this contract,” commented René Künzli, Director of Photovoltaics at BE Netz.


BE Netz specializes in solar energy and energy concepts. The company employs around 60 people and is headquartered in the new Energiehaus Luzern.
