Swiss solar aesthetics for the future: The younger generation will hardly be aware of the fact that Switzerland was once the leading nation in solar power in Europe. One of the pioneers from the height of the Swiss solar revolution is 3S Swiss Solar Solutions AG in Gwatt near Thun.
For more than 20 years, it has been manufacturing MegaSlate, aesthetic solar modules developed specifically for building-integrated photovoltaics. It has also been through many ups and downs during this time. Today, however, production is back in full swing, due in part to the new state-of-the-art production line that went into operation in August 2021. This is supporting 3S in successfully meeting the sharp rise in demand for high quality, aesthetic photovoltaic systems.
