Switzerland’s Biohof Schmid produces organic seeds, fruits as well as organic meat products – powered by solar energy since 2009. Shortly after installing their own solar system, the first neighbors asked the team if they could help them realize their own projects:


“We are actually quite busy with our core business which is not an installer business at all. But as there is demand and we have the internal know-how, it was a legit step to develop our business into this direction.”



“To set up PV installations as a side business we needed a reliable and flexible partner with the ability to serve regions like Luzern. The Canadian Solar Onlineshop offers what we need. Most of our installations are planned and organized after business hours, ordering all components online enables our installations.”


Canadian Solar EMEA is currently running a project dedicated to support solar installers focused on residential and small commercial projects. Already launched in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, we are helping installers efficiently order solar modules and components online. This online solution now is the basis for generating additional business for partners like Heinz Schmid:


“We are happy to have a strong partner who supports us not only with products but services as well. Together we have already realized many projects in a very smooth and efficient way. Thanks to Canadian Solar we can now offer our customers solar installation services right next to our blueberry sorbet.”
