In summer, Switzerland does not need as much electricity as it produces. It exports surplus abroad. Even during energy saving time. «We are in a difficult situation. And with the savings campaign, we say: the population can help too, » said Federal Councilor Simonetta Somaruga (62) in a recent interview with Blick. While the population pulls the plug at night, Switzerland continues to sell electricity abroad.
