Typical Project

SF01_top_view_focus Our typical project for a one-family house is a classical-look design, typical for a North Italian town. The building design and the internal lay-out may be both adapted to the plot’s size and the customer’s preferences.

The structural construction material is a heavy-mass sandwich of wood, isolating rockwool Xylon-Montecchio-web-1and  painted planks – 35 cm thick plus a mildew-barrier – to ensure a high thermal inertia. The heating circuit is powered by a heating pump with a noiseless low-speed airflow, which might be backed up by a pellet stove at customers request.

The heating pump operates the Ventilated Heating Recycle (VHR) with a heating recovering feature to get the most of the free heat from the insiede.

287-PV-roof-top-web_miniThe house is powered by a 4,5 kW roof-top solar plant for about 80% of the total draw over the year, and a 5 kW generator for the remaining 20%, basically during the winter months.

A rack of batteries allows for 10-hour back-up at an average load while ensuring the balancing of the two sources during charge-discharge cycles.

Options are available for the heating system – such as electrical panels, pellet-fuelled stoves – as well as the back-up source (de-rated power grid connection, micro cogenerator) according to the location and the customers requirements.

Here is the system’s graphical scheme, the item list of the off-grid hybrid system, the electrical scheme (draft), and the daily/yearly power-trend diagrams:
