Solarroof Costa Rica
In March 2009 Steca Elektronik GmbH and Sunset Solar installed two solar thermal systems, a grid connected PV-system, two solar street lamps and a backup-system for hot water and electricity production.
Thanks to the solar systems the school is able to cover a part of its energy needs in an environmentally friendly way. The solar thermal system heats up water for the showers and for the kitchen.
Thanks to the solar systems the school is able to cover its energy needs environment-friendly. A solar thermal system on the rooftop of the auditorium heats up the tap water and supports the school's heating system. The photovoltaic systems on the rooftop of the sports hall and on the facade towards the main entrance produce electricity for the illumination of the classrooms and for electronic equipment of the school.
Thanks to the solar systems the school is able to cover its energy needs in an environmentally friendly way. A large solar hot water system (Professional) heats up water for showers and for the pool. A small hot water system (Family House) heats up water for the kitchen. A PV island system works as a backup for the electronic equipment of the school. A grid-connected solar system will be used to feed the sun’s energy into the nations power grid.
The solar power system has been installed on the roof of the Waldorf-School in Windhoek. It combines groundbreaking solar technology with a sophisticated technical concept. With a surface of 200 square meters and a peak capacity of 14.28 kWp, the system is expected to produce 25,000 kWh of environmentally sound electricity, which will be used directly by the school or fed into the grid of the local energy supplier.
On March 24, 2006 the first grid-connected system of Singapore was inaugurated inline with a celebratory opening ceremony under attendance of numerous national and foreign VIPs. With a peak capacity of 14.48 kWp and an estimated annual yield of 19,000 kWh, the solar system will serve as a flagship initiative for the sunshine-rich region south-east-asia.
