In April 2021, a photovoltaic system was installed on the roof of the Securitas Group building in Lausanne. The system consists of 180 modules with a total surface area of 299 m2 and an output of 62.1 kilowatts peak (measurement of the peak output of a photovoltaic system). This means that a great deal of the unused space on the roof is used for power generation. This latest system will cover up to 60% of Certas’ electricity requirements for its operations in Lausanne. You can view the performance and energy output for the Lausanne site and even follow it in real time here.
The roofs of the two complexes in Zollikofen and Lausanne are now equipped with photovoltaic systems that meet a large part of Certas' electricity needs.
