A passive solar home means a comfortable home

that gets at least part of its heating, cooling, and lighting energy from the sun.

It is designed to use the energy of sun. Its material

and building works together to create energy.


Large window expansion that allows sun energy, it faced south, made improvements in more low cost. It is a construction material which stores or collect energy from sun. Once power of the sun is collected, it should not be waste. So, it eliminates the air leak around the building. Helps to circulate the stored solar energy when needed.

Independent from future fuel cost, save money long after initial cost recovery. High owner satisfaction and resale value. Reduced operation and repair. No operating noise, act as warmer and cooler according to the climate even in power failure .

Passive solar design save energy by maximizing

the homes natural heating. Passive solar building design very important role in reducing the greenhouse emissions in our society. Creating passive solar building to save energy & which voluntary comply with openings are also important compliments to passive heating & cooling.

Passive solar building designThese standards are

much higher then houses built to most normal building. About 15% space heating in an ordinary home comes from solar energy passive solar houses are designed to let heat into the building during the wintersimple huge difference in comfort The building it self server as solar collector & storage device where as ordinary building not like that.

It uses the basic design to trap heat when needed.

So, it keep the house cool in summer and hot in

winter. It picks up lot of free heat in winter from sunlight contains about a kW of heat .

Active solar technologies are employed to converts

into solar energy another more useful form of energy. This would normally be a conversion to heat or electrical energy. Active solar uses electrical or mechanical equipment for this conversion. Passive solar relies on the inherent thermo-dynamic properties of the system or materials to operate. They do not need external energy source.

An energy-plus-house produces more energy from

renewable energy sources, over the course of a year, than it imports from external sources. This is achieved using a combination of micro generation technology and low-energy building techniques, such as: passive solar building design and careful site selection and placement. A reduction of modern conveniences can also contribute to energy savings, however many energy-plus houses are almost indistinguishable from a traditional home, preferring instead to use highly energy-efficient appliances, fixtures, etc., throughout the house

A zero-energy building(ZEB) or net energy (ZNE)

building general term applied a building with zero net energy (ZNE) consumption and zero carbon emission annually. Reduce carbon emissions and reduce dependence on fossil fuels zero energy buildings remain uncommon even in developed countries, they are gaining importance and popularity.

No ZEB regulations or standards

First efficiency,

then solar Together, they can make a big difference.

= Zero Energy Building.

Buildings are the Largest Energy Consumer in the U.S. 40% of primary energy, 72% of electricity, 55% of natural gas.

Money Savings (>$1,000s/year)

Greater comfort.
Better quality of life, more free time, more money. Less use, Less maintenance.

Longer lasting heating and cooling equipment.

In the United States, buildings account for almost

40% of primary energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. Energy use will help address climate change and extend the life of our national resources. Has set a goal to achieve cost-effective, net-zero energy commercial buildings in all U.S. climate zones by . Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) leads the way in net-zero energy building (NZEB) innovation.

Can achieve zero energy home now

Design for efficiency and solar up-front. Super high level of energy efficiency. Encourage conservation of residents. Choose solar thermal for water and pool heating. Use small PV systems of 4kW or so this is still not cost effective at present electric rates without subsidies Consider some PV on West side to reduce utility peak. Watch your meter spin backwards

This house will save a projected $165,000 in fuel and

energy cost. Over the next 20 years.

We are saw about how to

save energy. In this way we are follow to reduce usage of electricity. It will be help us and also our Future generation.
