Reportedly, the agreement envisages the supply of electricity from the Axpo hydropower plants to all the Sunrise locations in Switzerland.
“Axpo supplies the company with certified electricity from Swiss hydropower plants at a fixed price set down in the agreement. This applies to all Sunrise locations on the open market that have a power consumption of over 100 MWh per year.

With the contract, Sunrise is relying solely on renewable energies and has secured the certification for climate-friendly energy production from hydropower,” said the company.
“With the conclusion of this full supply contract, the telecommunications company is not only focusing on sustainability and green electricity. It has also obtained the best possible planning security for its power costs with consumption-adapted full supply from Axpo.”
