Passive Solar Home and Green House

Passive Solar Home and Greenhouse

This passive solar home with conventional wood framing was designed and built by the owner, Justin van Wart, with design & construction management assistance by Paul Shippee. The 11 PV (solar electric) panels on the roof provide 4 Kw of power in a grid-tie system (no batteries). Other main features are an attached solar greenhouse, interior adobe walls for lots of thermal mass, and two solar thermal collectors on the deck for domestic hot water.
