For those that have not researched solar energy for their new home design, South East Solar defines solar in quite simple terms. Solar energy is the cleanest and most inexhaustible of all known energy sources. Solar radiation is the heat, light and other radiation that is emitted from the sun. Solar radiation contains huge amounts of energy and is responsible for almost all the natural processes on earth. The suns energy, although plentiful, has been hard to directly harness until recently. They further explain the impact that house plans using solar water heating can have on the environment.
Using solar and other forms of renewable energy reduces reliance on fossil fuels for energy production, thus directly reducing CO2 emissions. CO2 emissions contribute to global warming, an environmental issue which is now of great concern. The average household can reduce CO2 emissions by as much as 20% by installing an Apricus solar collector.
Any of our house plans may incorporate solar in the home design. Your new dream home can actually save you money from the moment you move into the earth friendly house plan of your dreams.
