The small PV array powers an extremely durable DC circulating pump from evacuated tube collector to the storage

Solar hot water panels on the roof provide domestic water as well as heat the in-floor heating system. Carver and his team oriented the sloped roof to the south so the solar panels could receive maximum light.

Churchill says that often when people design a modern farmhouse, they reference something like what a member of the landed gentry might have resided in, rather than a humble dwelling where a hardworking farmer might have lain his weary head

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
Solar photovoltaic panels also help offset electricity costs. The house isn’t net zero, but it's close. A common misconception is that solar photovoltaic panels directly power the house and the electronics inside. The sun shines and the computer works etc. A more common installation works more
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

Solar heating system on the roof: how does it work equipment and cost
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 see the photovoltaic
The solar thermal panels have a pump that pumps water from the hot water system to the top of the panels. The water goes through the black panels, which are heated by the sun, and warms the water. It is pretty amazing how much they can heat water. It can take 60ºF water and heat it up to over 170ºF
