Title: Complete Alternative Energy Supply

The aim of the project was to be a forerunner in installing a photovoltaic facility that feeds the power grid. In 1997 it was not so common to implement such a project. Initially people smiled at this project, but since those days the attitude has changed. The energy consumption of a four-person household is approximately 2700 kWh; the photovoltaic facility produces approximately 2300 kWh. Through participation in two wind power plants, a 100% sustainable energy supply can be achieved for years.
