Whilst planning their new home in 2009, the German family were certain that they needed a PV system. Their goal was to use their self-generated solar power directly at home to live sustainably, minimising their impact on the environment as well as saving big on energy costs.
Electricity from the roof for the home
In the new house, the electricity supply has gone green and is self-generated. The 13.455 kWp PV system generates around 11,033 kWh of solar power per year and supplies electricity for the washing machine and dishwasher from their own roof. Self-generated green power is also used to provide warm water and energy for heating.
