Title: Power from renewables for single-family home
Already in 1997 the Schauer family in Kallham installed a 2.42 kW/p photovoltaic system on the roof of their single-family home. This covers 90% of the family’s power requirement; they obtain the rest from two wind farms in neighboring villages. The photovoltaic system generates DC current that is then converted to AC.
