When installing a solar energy system, the most important factor that should be kept in mind is the method of collection of energy from the sun to the maximum. There are many different types of collectors, but flat plate air collectors are the best in the business and are the most commonly used ones among solar system users.

Passive Solar Energy and Residential Solar Energy

Passive Solar Energy and Residential Solar Energy

The passive solar designed buildings or homes mean savings in lieu of heating and cooling costs at virtually no cost but merely by the virtue of designing and features of the building. The solar energy will require the installation of equipment or the solar panels to eliminate or minimize the electricity bill.
