This home previewed below is a passive solar design, which combines south facing windows with an insulated thermal mass concrete / tile floor that absorbs heat from sun light during the winter months. The west, north and east facing windows are Low-E to limit the heat gain. The overhangs were built to shade the structure from heat gain during the summer. The home was constructed using the Rastra Block system, which is a 10 inch wide concrete impregnated foam block form that is grouted solid and has an insulating valve of R28. The home also has a 2.7 KW solar panel system that makes energy and puts it back into the power grid. The home is all electric and generates on the average $65 per month utility bill.
