At our sites in Effretikon and Fehraltorf we run two photovoltaic plants, with a combined surface area of 3000 square meters and generating an average of 435 MWh a year. Also, we draw our entire electricity requirement from the 100% Swiss Ökostrom (“eco-electricity”: Ökostrom Schweiz is a Swiss renewable energy initiative), which is sourced from the independent green electricity specialists FAIR POWER. The FAIR POWER certificate guarantees that this electricity has been ecologically produced and fed onto the grid for us. The CO2 portion of hydroelectricity production is fully compensated for via the Fair Recycling Foundation. Because we draw our requirement from Ökostrom our CO2 emissions are 169 tonnes CO2-e less than if we had purchased our electricity on the conventional electricity market. We source the heat we require for the company’s buildings from the district heating network operated by Elektrizitätswerke des Kantons Zürich.
