The KWO produces around 2,350 Gigawatt hours of electricity annually in its 9 power plants. This represents roughly 7% of all the electricity produced in Swiss hydroelectric power plants. Enough electricity to cover the annual consumption of roughly one million people - electricity which is naturally regenerative.
Around 700 million cubic metres of water, in the form of rain and snow, fall in the KWO's catchment area. This water develops enormous power as it falls to the valley below.
The 26 turbines in the KWO's power plants produce a maximum capacity of 1125 megawatts. This represents the power of around 3,000 articulated trucks - imagine a 50 km long row of trucks! With one notable difference - our power plants don't emit any pollution!
