      Original Press Release:

      Nov. 30 -- AMAG Group AG issued the following news release:

      The addition of photovoltaic systems is part of the comprehensive sustainability and climate strategy of the AMAG Group to become climate-neutral by 2025. As part of this strategy, another solar system was connected to the grid on the roof of AMAG Etoy on November 25th. A total of 969 solar panels are located on an area of ??1,876 m2, which provide a cumulative electricity production of around 428,550 kWh/year.

      As part of the comprehensive sustainability and climate strategy of the AMAG Group, the expansion of photovoltaic systems (PVA) at its own locations plays a central role in order to be able to produce more electricity for own use in the future. In implementing this strategy, around 75,000 m2, i.e. around 10 football pitches, will be equipped with solar panels by 2025. This will enable AMAG to cover more than 20 percent of today's electricity needs itself. The solar offensive has picked up speed since 2021 and numerous photovoltaic systems have already been connected to the grid, including at the AMAG locations in Basel, Lupfig and Chur.

      On November 25th, a further photovoltaic system was added at AMAG Etoy. The peak output of the system is 392 kWp. Lionel Collardey, Managing Director of AMAG Etoy, says: "We are pleased that we can produce electricity for our own daily needs with the solar system that has just opened at AMAG Etoy. The system is further proof that AMAG takes its responsibility as a company seriously and that sustainable mobility plays a central role in its strategy.”

      With the aim of becoming the leading provider of sustainable individual mobility, the AMAG Group would like to increasingly produce electricity itself and use it for its own use in the garages and to operate the electric vehicles it sells. The recent takeover of the company Helion, which specializes in photovoltaics, heat pumps and e-mobility, should also be mentioned in this context. With Helion, the AMAG Group is able to offer its private customers complete solutions for everything to do with electromobility via the existing retail and service partner network: modern branded products, sustainable power generation using photovoltaics and intelligent charging solutions for efficient energy management at home.
