Any­one can make a con­tri­bu­tion to the ener­gy tran­si­tion with bal­cony pow­er plants. And the bureau­crat­ic hur­dles for instal­la­tion are final­ly falling in more and more coun­tries. In terms of leg­is­la­tion, Europe is cur­rent­ly lead­ing the way with the “Reg­u­la­tion for Gen­er­a­tors” direc­tive. It includes a de min­imis lim­it that allows pri­vate elec­tric­i­ty gen­er­a­tion of up to 800 watts with­out reg­is­tra­tion.

The mini pho­to­volta­ic sys­tems are cheap­er than solar pan­els on the roof and can be eas­i­ly attached to the bal­cony para­pet. The solar pow­er is fed direct­ly into the sock­et and the house­hold grid via an invert­er. What the wash­ing machine and oth­er devices do not use them­selves is fed into the pub­lic grid. MR prod­ucts help to ensure that the grid remains sta­ble despite such addi­tion­al feed­ers.
