Contrarily to popular belief, solar energy is cost competitive with grid electricity. Energy regulators, investors and key industry players have identified this trend as the democratisation of energy resources since the cost advantage of solar over conventional power is set to further increase in the coming years. In addition, this technology is the most suitable solution for the Swiss market due to the availability of existing roofs and the tried and tested installation process of solar which can be completed in as little as a day. Solar panels are highly reliable and require no maintenance. In other words, solar is an effective way to reduce your energy costs and your environmental footprint.
