The use of hydroelectric power in the Grimsel and Susten area commenced in 1925 with the founding of the Kraftwerke Oberhasli AG (Oberhasli AG power plants). In several stages, an impressive facility came into being that comprises eight dams and nine power plants, generating electricity for 1.2 million people.

The KWO is one of the leading hydroelectric companies in Switzerland. Due to its large storage lakes, which can also supply a huge amount of "fuel" in winter, the KWO can react promptly to the ever-changing demand for power throughout the year.

The Grimsel area offers a host of fascinating insights into electricity production from hydropower. The KWO runs restaurants and hotels, operates mountain railways, provides information about the subterranean world of the power plant, and builds and maintains overhead rope bridges and mountain trails.
