In addition it is necessary to own a roof or land, so people renting apartments are hardly able to generate their own solar power. Plug and play solar systems from base.energy are easy to use, reliable and affordable and let people living in city apartments participate in the “Energiewende”.

The number of companies offering sustainable products is growing every day. Great news! However the cost of delivery to the end-customer (the "last-mile") is often high.
