A Swiss energy firm has introduced almost 5,000 sunlight-powered chargers on the nation’s longest dam. The boards will create clean power through the colder time of year when a drop in downpour and meltwater decreases the development of hydropower the nation over.
At 8,000 feet above ocean level, the Lake Muttsee dam sees little of the haze more common at lower elevations. Also, during the chilly months, snow on the mountains reflects daylight onto the boards. The exhibit will create sufficient power to drive around 700 homes, as per Axpo, the organization behind the undertaking.
“One of the characteristics of snow capped sun based plants is that particularly in winter they produce up to multiple times more power than an equivalent office in the midlands,” Axpo representative Jeanette Schranz told Reuters.
This is very good and eco-friendly! I hope that other countries are inspired by Switzerland and start creating an impact to end our climate crisis once and for all!
