SOLAR HOUSE, VERMONT—view from the west.

The solar house combined both active and passive solar heating strategies.

Photovoltaic panels were installed on the roof and the central section of the house had glazed sections of the roof with a central wall mass that acted as heat storage and dissipater. The released heat from this wall was re-circulated through a roof duct system. Additional heat storage was gained from the stone floors.
