Kyocera Modules On World’s Largest Stadium-Integrated PV System

The world’s largest stadium-integrated photovoltaic system went into operation this week on the STADE DE SUISSE Wankdorf Bern. After the additional installation of 2,808 solar modules, the stadium now has 7,930 modules from the Japanese photovoltaic (PV) module manufacturer Kyocera, providing an overall output of 1.3 MW peak. The expanded system will produce 1,134,045 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year and save on the emission of 630 tons of CO2 annually. With this expansion, the facility has the world’s largest stadium-integrated photovoltaic system on its roof. The complete installation was planned by system supplier TRITEC and assembled on the stadium over a total construction period of 10 months. The annual energy yield of 1,134,045 kWh covers the electricity consumption of more than 350 local four-person households.
