6. Photovoltaic pergola at Electrosuisse
Two photovoltaic systems provide a bit of shade at the Electrosuisse office building. The system on the roof forms the roof of a pergola and serves as a design element of the building. It provides shade on the terrace of the staff restaurant in summer. The second system was installed as a roof for parking spaces in the car park.

In addition to the preliminary study and development of the photovoltaic concept, Basler & Hofmann also took care of the planning, site supervision and acceptance tests for both photovoltaic systems. Particular focus was placed on staff safety, which is guaranteed whatever the weather, thanks to the glass roof.
