Aesthetics and Energy

Photovoltaic plants enchant with aesthetics; no energy source is more popular than solar energy. With just 40 square metres of roof surface it is possible to generate enough energy to cover the annual power need of a 4 person household with solar modules. No other country uses solar energy for energy production as intensely as Germany on small and big roofs just as on free-fields.

Solar Modules

A solar module converts the light of the sun directly into electrical energy. As the most important components, it contains several solar cells (mostly on silicon basis) or is made out of solid-state materials in thin-layer technology. Solar modules are panelled individually or in groups in PV plants connected to the grid or used by independent consumers.

Inverter

An inverter is an electrical device that converts DC voltage into AC voltage direct power. Inverters reach efficiencies of up to 98 per cent, they are applied where a consumer needs alternating voltage, but where only one DC voltage is available, such as in a car battery; or where the output of a DC voltage source shall be fed into the AC network, as in photovoltaics.
