Solar power is one of the finest and most efficient renewable energy sources available. The pay-back period on a solar power system is usually a few years, after which the savings are outstanding. Solar energy is earth-friendly and these systems going up today make a very positive impact on the future.
Passive Heating and Cooling
You have likely heard people talk about passive homes. The same principle can be applied to the construction of commercial buildings. Passive buildings employ the sun in the winter but minimize its effects during the summer. Building according to the sun’s location, window locations and overhangs for shade are figured into the blueprints. This strategy works by charting the sun’s location during the changing seasons.
