The plan will more than double the current solar capacity to 30,000 m2 – more than four times the playing surface of the Stade de Genève.

Geneva finance minister, Serge Dal Busco, says there is a huge untapped potential. Already the canton produces 2 gigawatt hours of solar electricity every year.
