The GO Home Passive House
What are the specs for the solar panels? Output, brand, etc. How much power do they put in to the grid at a given time(full sunny day versus cloudy)?
Cost, and share of that cost atttributable 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
Any suggestions for finding a bank that is passive solar friendly?

The rear view of the house shows the standing seam metal roof set at an optimal angle for the solar thermal panels. Barely visible to the left is the other roof form, set at a lower angle for the PV panels. The overhangs are designed for winter sun penetration and summer shading. Photo Credit: Kipnis
Solar heating system on the roof: how does it work equipment and cost
There are two types of solar panels on this home - one for electric power (photovoltaic panels) and the other set for solar thermal panels to heat water. The panels that you see in the photo above are the solar thermal panels. If you look carefully in the distance, on the second sloped roof, you can

Hi I'm in the process of designing a solar roof on a garage. I am curious what application was used here to attach the panels to the roof? Thanks!
Windows are beautiful. Please give detail about their solar efficiency, what brand, and are there tax credits
Hello Kelty, this solar installation was installed by Vermont Solar Engineering, if my memory serves me well. You can contact them at: http://www.vtsolar.com Good luck, Ted

What kind of solar panels are these?
I'm interested in solar for my home and would like to know what kind they are, how energy efficient they have proven to be and what are you using them to power? Thank you.
Solar in Design? That would be great!
these solar panels don't look like they are on brackets, above the roof, but rather built into the roof -
What an inobtrusive solar panel - nice, and in Florida, it would be great to save on your electric bills.
Need to incorporate solar if possible also solar hot water booster
Though still connected to the grid, the home does incorporate several solar energy items, such as these collectors.

What color and manufacturer are the solar shades?
With solar shades like these - the intention is to dim light penetration - So one can see from dark to light easily, but it's difficult to see from light to dark
Solar shades - can see through when lights on
Mesh window screens (like at condo) to keep out solar, but allow light to come in.
Mesh Window ScreensMesh window screens reduce heat gain by diffusing solar radiation. Experts advise mounting the screen to an exterior frame and covering the entire window. Ideal locations: East- and west-facing windows. Best
