Welcome to Living on Solar. Have you ever
wondered what it might be like living in a solar home? We live in a
passive solar home. The sun provides heat for our home in the winter,
cooling for our home in the summer, heats our water and provides most of
We have created this site to show how we use
solar power. We have made solar videos that can be watched through
this site showing the various ways that we use solar energy to provide for our
heating, cooling and electrical needs. We hope that they will be interesting and informative to
those who know little and those who may know a lot about what can be done
to harness the sun's energy. We hope our videos will be a help to anyone who may be considering using solar
power or even making solar living a way of life.
The passive solar, solar
electricity, solar heating, solar cooling, and solar tracking videos
are all up and running. You can find the videos on the links to the
left. We hope that you will return often as we add new ones to the list.
