Solar Panels for Homes
Provides the resources you need when considering a residential solar photovoltaic system. We provide information on how to perform a site evaluation, compare the different solar technologies available, and keep you informed of the latest trends in the industry.

The Kosmer Solar House Project -- The Passive Solar Home
John Kosmer  built a new traditional style 4000 sq. ft. passive solar home for $125.00 a sq. ft. that heats for $2.50 a day ($900-1200 a year in the cold Upstate, NY region).  The website explains how the home was built and how it functions. This home, heated by the sun, cost about the same a comparable size new ENERGY STAR qualified home but uses less than 70% of the energy of that comparable new home. 80% is possible if this home was not in the Snow Belt in and had regular height ceilings.
