Advantages of your own photovoltaic system – Sustainable, cost-effective, self-sufficient

Green, sustainable energy

They produce climate-friendly electricity and contribute to a better environment.

Advantages of a photovoltaic system in Switzerland

Increased property value

The value of your home is significantly increased by a solar installation on the roof.

Subsidies & deductible costs

The federal government supports the purchase of solar systems with approximately 20 % subsidies. The investment costs can also be deducted from taxes in most cantons.

Lower electricity costs

Solar power from your own roof is cheaper than power from the public grid. You can permanently reduce your electricity costs by 30%.

Autonomous power production

With your own solar system, you become self-sufficient and are less affected when electricity price increases.

Become a power entrepreneur

They generate income by feeding solar power into the grid. In most cases, the initial investment for a solar system pays for itself over its entire lifetime.

Solar Calculator – Roof compatibility with solar panels

Basierend auf Ihrem Standort kann unser Solarrechner bereits einschätzen, ob sich eine oder mehrere Dachflächen Ihrer Immobilie für eine Solaranlage eignen. Compatibility with a photovoltaic system is primarily determined by solar radiation, roof orientation, inclination, shading, and roof size.

Economic efficiency of a photovoltaic system

Calculate the profitability of a photovoltaic system with our Solar Calculator – Are solar panels worth it?


Solar systems combined with high self-consumption often pay for themselves after 15 to 20 years. Our Solar Calculator analyzes the profitability of a PV system for you. If the roof is suitable for a photovoltaic system, the question often arises: Is the investment worth it? From a purely ecological point of view, this question can always be answered with a yes. From an economic point of view, the costs (acquisition costs, operating costs), the subsidy contributions, the local electricity prices, the local feed-in tariffs, self-consumption etc., are decisive. Our Solar Calculator calculates the amortization period and shows you neutrally whether the investment is worthwhile.

Online Solar Calculator – helps with decision making

Our digital Solar Calculator combines different databases, so you can get an all-in-one result. Based on your location, we calculate the solar potential of the house.

The data you enter is sufficient to provide you with a first estimate of the annual electricity production and consumption as well as the costs. This enables you to assess whether a photovoltaic system is a sensible investment for you and your needs.

Cost of solar panels – acquisition costs, operating costs and subsidies

A normal solar power system for an average single-family home in Switzerland costs around CHF 15,000 after subsidies and tax savings.

Calculate self-consumption with the Houzy Solar Calculator

The higher the self-consumption and the proportion of solar energy produced in the total energy requirements, the faster the solar system pays for itself.

What information does Houzy need for the Solar Calculator?

FAQ arrow

To find out whether your house is suitable for a photovoltaic system, we need the address. This allows us to obtain relevant information from publicly accessible databases and directories, such as the geographical location, roof area or roof orientation. Some key data about the house and your energy requirements help us to fine-tune the calculations. Afterwards, you will immediately receive online access to your digital solar analysis on Houzy by email.

Why is the Solar Calculator free of charge?

FAQ arrow

Houzy is a start-up and finances itself by brokering third-party services and through advertising partnerships with national and regional partners.
