ABB, working with partner Umwelt Arena Spreintenbach, have created the world’s first off-grid multi-occupancy building without compromising on comfort.
Built in the northern lowlands of Switzerland and home to nine families, this revolutionary building sources all of the energy that residents need for living from the sun.
The roof and the entire facade are clad with solar panels and 26 ABB solar inverters, which convert DC power from the solar panels to AC power, providing a renewable source of electricity and ultimately a renewable source of combustible fuel for the house.
