News updates from Solar Oregon
A three part series, these Goal Net Zero (GNZ) discussions are great follow up for anyone that has attended a past GNZ tour or just wanting to learn more about net zero concepts, design and building science.
In July of 1979 the "Beer Bottle Solar Collector" by David E. Cowlishaw made the front page of the Springfield Gazzette in the Eugene Oregon area. The editorial commentary said "He's betting at least a six pack on it." The inventor didn't have editorial rights, the bottles are used as storage rather than collecting, and the "green" concepts of today were perhaps a little early for this concept. Obviously this concept is now public domain.
