On the heights of Saint-Imier, in the Bernese Jura, Mont-Soleil opens onto a panorama facing the Chasseral, the Alps, and Mont-Blanc. Popular with tourists, the path which runs along the ridge at 1,200 meters allows you to discover the largest wind farm in Switzerland, made up of sixteen turbines, as well as a solar power plant covering the consumption of around 120 households. When it was inaugurated in 1992, it was the largest in Europe, with the primary objective of studying and promoting photovoltaic production. An extension project now intends to perpetuate this spirit of innovation, not without contestation. The inhabitants of Saint-Imier will decide on its implementation on June 9.
