Title: Autonomous Energy Concept for Austrian Church
The renovation of the roof of the parish church St. Konrad (constructed 1959-61) in Linz (Austria) became necessary because it leaked during rains. Simultaneously with the renovation of the roof, the decision was made to install solar panels and/or a photovoltaic facility. The solar energy plant has an area of 400 m². The whole roof area is 940 m². This energy from Heaven makes a bold statement for the environment and follows the request of Pope Johannes Paul II, who called for ecological reversal in 2001.
