4.6KWP Photovoltaic system on a house in Finland

Last year in August we got our 4.6 KWP photovoltaik on-grid system up an running. Time for some thoughts.

One Year in Finland

23rd of May 2017 came and went. Why is that an important date anyway? Well, it's the one-year anniversary of our life in Finland. On the 23rd of May 2016 my Mum picked us up from the Tampere airport and brought us back to the house, which was completely jam-packed with moving boxes.

We Built Our Own Biogas System

After the successful Biogas workshop at the Parainen permaculture we scheduled another Biogas workshop. This time at our own premises: the Beyond Buckhtorns Permaculture. We had plans to build this DIY Biogas system since we planed our move to Finland.

Biogas Workshop at the Parainen Permaculture

On the weekend of the 28th of April Lumia and I drove down to the Parainen Permaculture, better known as Päivärinteen permakulttuuritila. I was invited by Lotta, who is the owner of the permaculture farm, to run a biogas workshop.

Installation of Our PV System - Picture Journal

Another throwback Thursday post!

As our photovoltaic system is back up and producing effectively after a Finnish winter break, I thought let's take a little picture journey back to July 2016 when the PV system was installed!

How We Chose Our Photovoltaic System

One of our early decisions when we started discussing moving to Finland was that we want to strive towards energy autonomy.

Our PV System Is Up and Running

Yesterday was the day when we got to turn on our PV (photovoltaic) system! Watch the video to see how easy it is to turn a switch - and see us as we turn it, taking a huge step towards energy autonomy.
