Saving Energy With Passive Systems
Metadata[+] Show full item record
One of the first ways solar energy was used in agriculture was to modify climatic extremes in cold livestock housing by using passive techniques. Passive techniques are extremely cost effective because they generally add little or nothing to the cost of the structure. This guide has information on designing and locating a building to make the best use of the sun and also on storing energy in such passive systems.
