Since 2020 I’m Solar Energy Producer. The Electric Vehicle was bought in 2019 and now the fuel is taken directly from our roof. Amortization time is calculated to 8 years so final yield is approx. 12.5% so it’s a perfect investment in these times.
That’s why I started developing bindings for openHAB because my E3DC Home Power Plant and my BMW i3 wasn’t supported so far.
Now openHAB takes care on the optimal energy consumption for
- House Comfort
- House Cooling & Heating
- Car Energy usage

Since 2006 I start taking Photos in order to have some creative balance to my technical oriented Computer work.
Most enjoying is Street Photography because I’m not addicted to „Beach Holidays“. You’ll find my work on Flickr.
