Long-Standing Statistical Information
 

Solar electricity statistics in Switzerland were compiled every year until 2009 with the assistance of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) and the Association of Swiss Electricity Supply (SESA). Since 2010, these indications are now based on the “Swiss Overall Energy Statistics” from the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE). These statistics describe the increase in photovoltaic installations connected to the electricity network and determine the yearly energy production through photovoltaic technology. This is a unique statistical basis for the production of solar power, which has been based on long-standing surveys since 1990.

Increase of Solar Electricity Systems Capacity until 2013

At the end of 2013 - 31'390 systems with around 752.4 MWp were connected to the grid, referring to the Swiss Overall Energy Statistics 2013:

This data represents the current situation of the PV sector in the association of electricity networks in Switzerland. It is to be viewed only as an indicator. No representations are made about the accuracy, reliability, completeness or timeliness of the data or about the results to be obtained from using the data. The use of the data is at your own risk and is to be used with discretion. Making figures more comparable with other federal energy statistics, the data previously produced for past years can be slightly adapted
