SummaryIn the new building estate De Geer in Wijk bij Duurstede, a dwelling with several environment-saving measures has been built: a rainwater installation, passive solar power by means of a closed veranda at the south side, low-temperature heating, regaining of heat out of ventilation air for heating of the house and tap water through a heat pump, and a 17 m² solar pv system. Combined, this should lead to a 50% decrease in use of water and a 70% decrease in use of fossil fuels. In this practical experiment, the solar pv system is assembled to an inclined, tile roof above the open veranda. The goal is to practically test the possibilities of integrating solar panels to roofing tiles in a watertight way. The application of assembly kits, special elements beneath the tiles and linking tiles between the solar panel and the corrugated roofing tiles, guarantees the watertight feature.
