In Switzerland, significantly more electricity could be produced using photovoltaics. But big projects still have a difficult time – despite all declarations of intent and climate goals. For this reason, the Greens are inviting the various stakeholders to a round table: electricity producers, environmental associations, cantons and the solar industry should jointly identify promising projects and mutually remove all stumbling blocks as early as possible. “Especially in large plants, different interests collide, that’s natural,” says Green National Councilor Kurt Egger (66, TG). It is all the more important that a solution-oriented discussion finally gets going. “It’s about creating a basic understanding for the expansion of solar energy outside of the building zones,” says Egger. And with the least possible impact on the landscape and biodiversity.

Egger’s party has proposed a round table to Energy Minister Simonetta Sommaruga via interpellation, but the answer is still pending. “The Federal Councilor is welcome to take the lead. If she doesn’t want that, we Greens will do it, because we have to act now, »says Egger.
