A 2 kW photovoltaic (PV) system with battery storage for emergency power supply was designed and installed as a test demonstration in a 112 square meter apartment. The system was installed to demonstrate the potential of a photovoltaic system (using thin-film solar modules) as an environmentally friendly and renewable source of energy compared to conventional electricity generation. Barriers to installation and preliminary estimations of system performance and costs are presented.
