Gary, So sorry to hear that you are struggling with this. In general our clients have had better success with local banks versus national, but it still proves challenging. Hopefully as the use of this construction method increases and becomes more popular, it will get easier. Best of luck.

The GO Home overall exterior dimensions are 32'-6" x 28'-0", however there is a section taken out of the front entry area, as well as a recessed storage area on the backside of the house, making these overalls just slightly misleading.

There are solar thermal systems that are reasonably simple to install. I'm sure there are lots of websites where one can learn to do it, get a parts list, etc. Solar electric panels generally require knowledge of the electrical code and would be best left to a licensed electrician or certified solar installer. In either case, you might not be eligible for federal or state incentive funds if you DIY, but that would be something to check into.

We used fixed windows on the south facade to maximize passive solar gain and thermal performance, while reducing costs. Larger windows are more energy efficient than smaller windows because the triple glazing performs thermally better than the frames, and larger windows are typically less expensive per unit cost than smaller windows. We installed operable windows on the east and west facades for cross ventilation. GO Logic purchased the windows directly from EGE in Germany.

If you would like to see a model GO Logic home, you can contact the Belfast Cohousing and Ecovillage, a community of GO Logic designed and built homes, meeting the passive house standard. (207) 338-9200 or info (at) mainecohousing (dot) org

It is a 2.85 kW solar array with panels made by Canadian Solar. On a sunny day they should produce about 2.5 kilowatts per hour. They are tied to the electrical panel in the house, so if power is being used in the house when the sun is shining, it will come from the solar panels. Any power produced beyond what is being used will be fed back to the grid (actually, the electrons flow to the nearest load, so in that situation the panels are feeding a neighbor's house, which is cool).

On a cloudy day output would be much less, depending on how thick the clouds were, but even on a cloudy, showery day we generally see .4 to .5 kilowatts being produced per hour.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A primary principle of Passive House standards is a compact building form. The goal in a cold climate is to reduce heat loss through the building's shell, something that's ideal for places like Maine.It’s simple: Sun shines through the windows, strikes a surface and warms it up. The house then traps that heat inside with a virtually airtight design gained through walls, a roof and even a floor that are superinsulated. Here structural insulated panels (SIPs), made of thick foam sandwiched between two layers of OSB, cover a frame made of 2-by-4s. The roof is loose-fill cellulose (basically chopped-up newspaper) to a depth of 2 feet, covered in a standing-seam roof for durability. The exterior is fiber cement clapboard intended to reflect a traditional regional aesthetic, in a deep red that speaks to a common New England color palette. The panels on the roof in the middle are for the solar hot-water system. A copper element inside a vacuum tube absorbs heat from sunshine even on cold days. The heat is exchanged and carried into the house to indirectly heat a 120-gallon hot-water tank. Solar hot-water systems like these cost around $10,000. Various tax incentives and rebates offered in numerous states sometimes significantly offset the upfront cost to install them. Pratt says the investment pays off in five to seven years, depending on usage.
Dylan Chappell Architects added this to 3 Surprising Essential Tools for the Modern Architect
But before we get into computer software, 3-D fly-through models and photorealistic renderings, there are a few fundamental qualities an architect must have, because even the most advanced software or gadget can't compensate for their absence. Certain time-tested skills can make the difference between a successful and an unsuccessful architect.
Green. Not so much a style as an approach, green design can work in concert with any other home style. From additions to older homes, such as solar panels, to new builds incorporating green features from the start, there are many ways to go green with your house choice.Is it for you? Saving on energy costs and preventing harm to the environment are solid reasons to choose a green home — plus, green features can be a boon when it comes time to sell.Learn more about this passive solar house
Becky Harris added this to The '70s Are Back. Can Ya Dig It?
Solar panels. The Carter administration made a big push for using solar energy, even installing solar panels on the White House in 1979. Unfortunately, we burned through a lot of oil while the idea slowly caught on and the technology improved. (The panels were removed during the Reagan administration in 1986.) But solar panels returned to the property in 2002, and more are being installed this month.See more architecture with solar panels

The other form is an evacuated-tube collector, pictured on this roof in the top center amid an array of PV panels. This kind of collector looks like a set of parallel glass tubes.There is another kind of solar water heater, known as a batch system. However, this is not used frequently here in Europe due to its susceptibility to freezing temperatures and lower efficiency. Even in the U.S. (as we saw this year with the phenomenal polar vortex), there are few places with no risk of freezing temperatures.
Christine Tusher added this to Going Solar at Home: Solar Panel Basics
Project: Installing solar panels.Why: To reduce your carbon footprint and save an average of $84 per month on your electricity bill.How it works: Solar panels are photovoltaic (PV) cells. In a nutshell, these special batteries harness sunlight, transform it into energy, then send that energy to an inverter, which converts it into electricity to power the home.

Cost, and share of that cost attributable to Solar collectors - Elsewhere on the web and in the book Prefabulous, this house is discussed. The cost is shown as $225,000 for about 1500 ft^2 of floor space, of $150 per ft^2. Does that cost include the solar collectors, etc.? If so, what is the rough cost of the house excluding the solar collectors?

Solar powered homes were a rarity as recently as a decade ago. But a plethora of federal and local tax incentives along with increasing worries about climate change have made them commonplace. Installing solar panels can decrease your household’s carbon footprint by an average of 35,180 pounds of carbon dioxide per year. You’d have to plant 88 trees every year to offset that amount of carbon dioxide! But between a tangle of technospeak (photovoltawhata?) and an explosion of installers and financing plans, it can be difficult to figure out where to get started. This introduction should help.

The house is open yet private. I like the woodsy setting and the big windows, which i hope are tinted or able to be covered in some attractive way. I would live here in a minute!

aine architect Riley Pratt estimates that the average energy bill for his home is less than $20 per month. And that’s including the $10 a month he pays just to have service. To put that into perspective, the average homeowner in Maine spent $2,478 on energy in 2009, according to the most recent data provided in the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s Residential Energy Consumption Survey. So how does Pratt achieve this in a state where temperatures regularly dip below 20 degrees in winter? By harnessing heat gained from sunshine. Pratt’s house, designed and built by his colleagues at architecture firm GO Logic, is based on Passive House standards, which were developed in Germany for assessing the energy efficiency of buildings. Houzz at a Glance Who lives here: Riley Pratt and his wife and toddler Location: Belfast, Maine Size: 1,500 square feet; 1 1/2 bathrooms
