Solar Hot Water Radiant Heat Working with the Sun, Planning for our Future!



Alternative Energy Strategies for Heating and Powering your Home



Photovoltaic and solar thermal in northern lattitudes.................................Flat plate solar thermal in the desert


This website is devoted to an overview of three alternative technologies, i.e. solar thermal, photovoltaic, and biofuels, as related to home heating and domestic hot water production. It's a work in progress, so bear with us as we update on an on-going basis.

Basically, because this information is not specifically concerned with installing radiant heat, a detailed discussion of solar and alternative energy would tend to clutter up our main website (it's already fairly vast). But hopefully, those interested in these technologies will find something of value here.

At this point (January '06) the "solar thermal" and "bio-fuels" pages contain detailed discussions. The other headings will be updated as time allows.
