SummaryThe project consists of 10 'school houses' in use as a school building temporarily as there are many young families in the new district. Later (when the district grows older) the buildings will be used for housing. The 10 houses with 28 m2 PV-panels each, have in total 285 m2 PV-panels, or about 26 kWp. The PV panels applied are so-called PV rooftiles. The PV-roofs are oriented more-or-less south under an tiltangle of 23 degrees. The yearly solar electricity output from the 10 semi-detached houses with PV is expected to be 19700 kWh.
