Apparently it is the wrong kind of sun for the solar industry

Or why Switzerland must build a few new generation nuclear power plants as well as raising the dam levels in the Alps... Solar doesn't cut it, period.
Don't think that would necessarily help Noth. From DP's link:

"Swiss public television, RTS, has reported that the nuclear power stations at Mühleberg, Beznau and Leibstadt have been forced to reduce power output to avoid heating up the Rhine and Aare rivers with their waste water.

The environmental measure is designed to protect aquatic life in the rivers as waste water heats up in the hot weather.

“Climate change will increase the number of problematic weather extremes that aggravate the situation at nuclear power plants and increase the risk of failures,” said Greenpeace Switzerland spokesman Florian Kasser."
