Geneva to expand solar power
Canton Geneva is planning to expand its solar power generation by using roofs on schools, prisons and other government buildings.
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.
