Azienda Elettrica Ticinese (AET) is the power utility owned by the canton of Ticino. Some 250 AET employees are responsible for the production of renewable energy with their own hydropower- and solar plants and the trade and transport of electricity. AET mainly supplies regional and local power utilities and large companies.
Together with AET and the canton of Ticino, the Stalvedro location was built in 2016, followed by the Quinto location – both at the rest stops at the south portal of the Gotthardo tunnel near Airolo. It was the first 150kW location in Switzerland, and possible worldwide. Additionally, at the beginning of 2018, fast charging infrastructure was put into operation at the newly built service areas Bellinzona Sud & Nord.
