  • FORTULUZ offers an energy output of 2.3 to 15 kW.

 

Electrical power ideal for:

  • Electricity supply 50m2, 1 or 2 persons without air conditioning: 2,3 kW
  • Electricity supply 60m2, 2 or 3 persons without air conditioning: 3.45 kW
  • Electricity supply 90m2, with air conditioning: 4.6 kW.
  • Electricity supply +90m2, high consumption of electrical appliances: 6 kW.
