Solar prize 2019

The SIGA Innovation Center Schachen is registered for the Solar Prize 2019. Also, our innovation center is a small power plant. The building (with nearly 6'000 m2 of solar panels) produces almost 20% more energy than it needs. And with the photovoltaic cells in the staircase windows, our commitment is both visible and beautiful to look at. Click here for more pictures.

The production hall is up

Due to the favorable weather conditions the new production hall could be

built up within a short time. This was possible, particularly because of the

close collaboration between timber builders, roofers and window fitters etc.

Thank you very much!
