Sustainability in Practice: Large Photovoltaic System Commissioned at NUSSLI Headquarters

The fourth-largest photovoltaic plant in the canton of Thurgau (Switzerland) has been in operation since early June. At the headquarters, the event and construction services provider NUSSLI is making a total of 8,000 m2 - more than a soccer field - available to the electric utility company 'Elektrizitätswerk des Kantons Schaffhausen AG' (EKS) for this purpose. In the future, the plant will supply electricity for NUSSLI and for more than 300 four-person households.

The Energy Transition is a topic that concerns us all and is doubly worthwhile. The switch from fossil fuels to domestic, renewable energies counteracts the dependence on foreign countries and reduces global warming. Two very good reasons to become active: 

That is why EKS's idea of setting up a large-scale photovoltaic system on the NUSSLI company grounds was met with a sympathetic ear. Andy Böckli, CEO of the NUSSLI Group, says: "We create sustainable or even self-sustaining buildings for our customers. With the new facility, we are now taking on even more responsibility on our grounds. We are pleased to take a step further towards a sustainable future together with EKS and to be able to supply ourselves with electricity." The new photovoltaic system was commissioned by EKS on June 7th and produces around 1.5 megawatt hours per year, which are fed into the EW Hüttwilen grid. That is 2.5 times what NUSSLI will consume on its own. The surplus supplies more than 300 four-person households. Around 4,100 modules were installed for the photovoltaic system: Most of them are located on the roof, some also on the façade of the warehouse.
