The company’s patented technology uses the space between the rails to install pre-mounted solar panels there. They will be connected using a piston mechanism.

As the startup engineers envisioned, the panels are easily removable, making the maintenance of the railways as simple and convenient as before.

Sun-Ways reportedly plans to test the technology on the public rail network near Butts Station in western Switzerland. If all goes well, it will expand the use of solar panels across the country and beyond.

The company itself estimates that solar panels could cover more than 5,000 km of railway lines in Switzerland and generate around 1 TWh of electricity per year. This is about 2% of all energy consumed in the country.
