The Jade-Solar Container JSC is a portable 45ft container (l x w x h = 13.72m x 2.50m x 2.70m) with a photovoltaic plant for solar energy harnessing. The solar energy that is produced is fed into the public grid in Germany according to the Renewable Energy Act (REA) and is reimbursed or supplied for personal use.
Single pitch roof
The single pitch roof (approx. 16.00 x 7.00m = 112m²) of the Jade-solar container should face south. The horizontal alignment of the photovoltaic modules is variable and, depending on the season, to be aligned in different angles. This results in surpluses of 15-25% in comparison to fixed roof-mounted systems.
