One of the biggest solar power stations in Switzerland!

When it opened in 2005, SIG Solar 3 was the biggest solar power station in Switzerland. Built on land made available after renewing the electrical transformer station at the Verbois Dam, it features 6,000 photovoltaic panels (monocristalline cells).

It’s arrival on the Verbois site was accompanied by the development of small biotopes and pioneering zones for native flora and fauna.

A few figures

The total amount of power generated is 1MW. Production reaches up to 1GWh per year, equal to consumption for about 300 homes in Geneva. The surface of the panels is 7066 m2 and they take up a total area of 16,000m2 - the equivalent of two football pitches.
