|BI PV Project Summary|
|Name project||CO2-neutral street Leeuwarden|
|Year||2000-07 (Start operation date)|
|PV application||Inclined roof - integrated|
|PV power total||69 kWp|
|Summary||The CO2-neutral street in Leeuwarden consists of 15 dwellings, each with a 425-m³ volume, that, because of their special design and construction, only need very little energy for central heating. They have a so-called EPC of 0.65.
On a yearly basis, the solar panels on the roofs of the buildings generate enough electricity for the dwellings and the use of electric equipment. The face of the roof is used optimally by using highly efficient solar panels (over 35 m² of monocrystalline cells for each dwelling). The solar pv systems are integrated in the roof.
The electricity grid helps out in case of a momentary insufficiency in electricity. A remains is transferred back to the grid for other consumers to use. The dwellings have a neutral yearly CO2 balance.|
