Private photovoltaic & energy use system in Herreth, Germany:
This System has been installed and setup in summer 2018.
Total PV power is 9,88 kWp out of 38 modules type IBC MonoSol 260 MS Black. These are looking perfectly at the dark-grey tiles of the roof due to their full-black optical appearance. Already here we got the special situation that 29 modules only are connected to an inverter SMA Tripower 7000 TL-20
The other 9 modules are feeding directly a heating rod in the water storage tank of the house, for thermal use of the solar energy. On one hand this allows the unproblematic use of the left roof area, which is shaded by a tree in the afternoons. On the other hand, the 2,34 kWp of these modules can be calculated fully into the contingent of the German KfW 275 benefit scheme. Sometimes you can play around with the regulations...
Additionally has been installed for further electrical self-consumption an IBC SolStore 6.5 Li lithium storage unit..
