Plus-Energy House - your prefabricated house as an energy generator

Plus-Energy House

The Plus-Energy House takes you one step further: you generate more electricity than you need yourself.

A photovoltaic system converts sunlight into electricity, which, when not being used, is sent to a storage device by an intelligent home control system. Surplus electricity is then fed into the public electricity grid.
