The first HORIZON solar folding roof over a parking area in Switzerland
For the first time, a HORIZON solar folding roof spans a parking area in Appenzellerland, Switzerland. In the visitor parking lot of the Jakobsbad-Kronberg cable car, the solar folding roof provides shade and supplies the cable car with locally produced solar power. 420 kWp power is installed on an area of approx. 4,000 square meters with 152 parking spaces. The annual electricity production covers the needs of 70 households.
In combination with charging stations for electric vehicles, the solar folding roof represents the perfect link between ecological mobility, local CO₂-free electricity production and the double use of sealed floor areas.
