SOLAR POWER FROM THE ENGADINE
Repower connects 3,447 solar modules to the grid
Since November 2020, S-chanf has been the site of the biggest photovoltaic installation in the Engadine. It consists of more than 3,447 solar modules, all owned by Repower, placed on the roof of the newly built ARA Oberengadin (ARO) sewage treatment plant. The installation has a total capacity of around 1.1 MW, and is expected to produce 1.45 GWh of electricity a year. Repower and ARO’s are ideally matched partners in S-chanf, with ARO running the sewage treatment plant along with a cogeneration unit, and Repower generating solar power on the roof and at the same time assuring efficient, dynamic energy management.
