Welcome

Visitor Centre Bözberg

The transparent dialogue with the general public, the authorities and the economy is of the utmost importance to Swissgrid. Therefore the Visitor Centre in Bözberg was created. It is a platform for objectively demonstrating and discussing the pros and cons of overhead lines and underground cabling.

Guided tours on the subject of underground cabling in Bözberg

It is a first for Swissgrid: At Gäbihübel near Bözberg/Riniken, Swissgrid is laying a long section of an extra-high-voltage line underground for the first time. Even though the cable trench has already been filled in and the conduit blocks are no longer visible, the project remains exciting. Swissgrid will collect data and gain insights during operation of the line.

On this website, you will find content on all aspects of underground cabling and overhead line construction, the partial cabling project at Gäbihübel and – if you have not been our guest yet – the option of registering for a visit. We look forward to talking to you.

    Electricity's journey from the producer to the power socket is complex. The electrical energy passes long distances and through various stages before it is finally transformed to the 230 volts used by the consumer.
