SummaryIn the already constructed east-west glass roof on an area of 1870 m² is this photovoltaic system integrated. The therefore biggest PV-system in Berlin has an integrated performance of 189 kW and produces 160.000 kWh electricity per year. Altogether the system consists of 780 glass-glass-modules with Saturn-cells made by BP-Solar. Each of these modules had to be manufactured fittingly precisely for the integration into the curved glass roof. With 117 inverters the generated direct current is converted into alternating current.
