Title: Renewable energy for single-family home
The project goal was to realize a harbinger solar power plant that feeds into the grid. In 1997 this was still a rare project. At the start the project was ridiculed, but this has changed radically since then. Household power consumption for a family of four is about 2700 kWh; the photovoltaic component averages 2300 kWh. Participation in two wind parks has enabled 100% autonomous power supply already over many years.
