The Affordable Passive Solar Planbook for North Carolina describes the basic fundamentals and components of passive solar design. A collection of passive solar floor plans suited for virtually any location are also included in this book. In addition to passive solar design elements, the plans contain a variety of energy efficient details. They are intended to be affordable homes, and many have less than 1,300 square feet of floor area. Note: These plans were developed in 2005 and the tax credits and checklists shown may be outdated, but the plans and guidelines remain current.
