It would be a shame for an emblematic monument such as the Chillon Castle to melt in the night.
Thanks to a partnership between the Fondation du château de Chillon and Romande Energie, the monument has had a new lighting since October 2011.
The Fondation du château de Chillon chose Romande Energie as their “Lighting Partner” to help them create this project, the illumination of the outer part of the castle, and of its courtyards.
In order to replace the old installations, the choice was made to use LED lights and lamps, and to manage the lighting with an electronic system, which helped save more than 25%, compared with the former installation.
This technology along with this artistic concept are solutions that meet the challenges of our times and of sustainable development.
By participating in this project, Romande Energie has demonstrated to us their expertise in the illumination of buildings and other elements of built heritage. The company represents for us a trusted, locally-based partner. For its part, the Fondation of the château de Chillon, which manages for the state of Vaud the castle’s conservation, restoration, and operation, follows a strategy aiming at strengthening the attractiveness of the site.
