Great question Kat! I am interested in encouraging anyone (new or old!) in the building design industry (architect, designer, engineer, etc.) to recognize the potential of passive solar for heating, and of airflow and thermal mass/ground temperatures for passive cooling strategies. I was so happy to ...

Thurs July 21, an ASES Chapter, Solar Washington, is hosting a free webinar on New State Solar Programs.

I saw this posting by Kate Miller, Director of Marketing & Communications for the Building Performance Association, and thought it would also be of interest to ASES members. (If you are not a member, please join.) NREL is seeking feedback on the use of WAP and Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program ...

Make a tax-deductible contribution to someone who is riding today! Maybe your favorite moderator or ASES board member! Donations are being matched so ASES receives twice as much. Those who contribute at least $25 to my ride can receive The Sun-Inspired House eBook, but all the funds go to the same ...

Hi all! I was surprised to see that my Climate Ride ASES fundraising efforts had already been matched and that the donations in my account were doubled! Of course, none of the funds go to the individuals, but ASES gets twice as much from everyone donation that you make! Last year, ASES Chair Robert Foster, ...

Dave, While there are no "best plans" for a condo, I can offer a few suggestions. Main axis of entire building should be compact to reduce overall exterior surfaces from which to lose/gain heat through, longer axis running east-west to allow for a greater percentage of south-facing wall in which to place ...

FYI - https://www.nytimes.com/2022/04/29/climate/solar-industry-imports.html Possible shortage of PV panels - another reason to minimize PV installation size by emphasizing efficient building shells, right-sized buildings and facilities along with the incorporation of passive solar and/or solar thermal ...

Keith, We were successful in getting Passive Solar (i think I will start capitalizing it as does Passive House) added to the checkbox on the National Solar Tour last year, but yes, the input form does still ask for the size of your PV system. We have also been asking the Zero Energy Project to add ...

Wow, am just now getting up to speed on this post which is very exciting! Thanks, Keith for starting it, and then Scott, Steve, and Mark (as well as the others) for adding their comments. When I joined the Tech Div of Solar Building (as Vice-Chair of the division) of ASES a couple of years ago, I did ...

Nice post Felix. Smaller buildings, more energy walls, floors, and roofs, and incorporation of passive solar for heating as well as incorporating efficient appliances and mechanical systems mean that buildings can be powered by fewer solar panels and smaller mechanical systems and therefore cost less ...

I can see Captain Sol organizing an event at SOLAR 2022 such as a fun run/walk and then again during the National Solar Tour. I saw him/her at SOLAR 2021 and was intrigued. I like the he/she direction so perhaps the character drawing needs to change. The version at SOLAR 2021 was headed in a good direction. ...

Thanks for sharing info about your services Arjun which I can see would be much-needed. Assuming you are an ASES member, I might also suggest that you post in one or more of the Community Forums such as the PV Technical Division or Solar Buildings where you can engage with others such as architects and ...

I believe Ella was asking about the custom-made feasibility Excel sheet as discussed in the YouTube video that builds upon the Excel data sheet that you can download automatically from PV Watts basic info. Felix, if you developed the custom feasibility Excel discussed in the YouTube video, are you willing ...

I hope there are solar cookers on the National Solar Tour so if you can encourage any homeowners with solar cookers to be on the NST ASES National Solar Tour | Experience Solar in Your Community , that would be super - esp. if any have one of the cookers built into the south wall of their home. ---- ...
