EWZ Energy Service Provider

The system of the Elektrizitńtswerk (electric power station) Zermatt was installed on the flat roof of the office building of the power station at the foot of the Matterhorn. It generates an energy yield of app. 6,190 kWh per annum, thus saving app. 3.5 tons of CO2 annually. In order to cope with the location's greater snow loads, the photovoltaic modules were installed with a distance of app. 40 cm from the roof. Thus the snow is allowed to slide off and energy losses in winter can be kept to a minimum.
