Case study 3, single-family house in Schlunkendorf

Solar energy is not only interesting for companies with enormous roof surfaces, a highly efficient solar plant can also be installed on a private house without difficulty. Apart from the ecological contribution, small solar energy projects are financially very lucrative. The Köster family from Schlunkendorf / Brandenburg also came to this conclusion. In the shortest possible time, they used Innowatt24 to realize a highly efficient solar plant on their roof which almost covered three times the overall electrical demand of the family. In 2012 the PV facility produced 8,382.4 kWh. The electricity not required by the family is sold or fed into the public network.
