WELCOME TO RAACH SOLAR

Ladies and Gentleman,

I am happy that you found the way to RAACH SOLAR to share common motivations. Let me introduce you to our company‘s philosophy and historical background.

My motivation has turned into my profession dating back to the 80‘s, where we still remember the nuclear accident of Chernobyl (Ukraine) and the continuous pollution of our air to breathe, our water to drink and our soil to plant. The Fukushima (Japan) nuclear accident and the ongoing pollution has remembered us that nothing has changed.


I see as major problem the continuous growth of our world‘s population and the consumption of our resources and fossil fuels which go in hand with the continuous pollution. Renewable energies in the energy sector are the only way to reduce greenhouse gases and replace a central energy supply into a democratic decentralized structure.


In particular photovoltaic technology with its modular design from small scale to large scale power systems is the utmost solution to alleviate the harm which has already been done to nature. Well designed integrated photovoltaic solutions can use existing surfaces to generate clean and affordable power.

RAACH SOLAR is a family owned company. Our office is not only a three glazed passive energy building, but a plus energy building which produces more power than it is consumed by electric devices and heating.


By combining best quality components and special designs, we create photovoltaic systems, that stand for durability, economics and esthetics.

Enjoy browsing through our photovoltaic website and photovoltaic systems catalogue.

Sincere thanks
Jürgen Raach
