The sun is a natural and reliable source of energy. Solar Energy can be used to create electricity, heat buildings, heat water, distill water, cook food, dry food, dry clothes, and power electric vehicles. This webinar will focus on how the sun can heat homes by incorporating basic Passive Solar design strategies to provide from 20-90% of a home’s heating needs with little cooling penalties. Passive Solar energy can lower heating bills and allow PV (photovoltaic) systems to be downsized. Learn how the movement of the sun, siting, building shape, window placement, overhangs, porches, building mass, and insulation work together to warm and brighten homes. The webinar will include examples and design tools by various passive solar experts such Mark Rosenbaum, P.E., Net Zero Energy Instructor; Christopher Gronbeck, Solar Tools Developer, Sustainable by Design; Orlo Stitt, Passive Solar Builder, The Stitt Energy Group, as well as others.
