Description of Passive Workshop

Passive Home

 Passive Solar Building Design Workshop

 A practical "how to" workshop for builders, designers and individuals who are planning to design or build a passive solar home.  You gain an understanding about the natural processes that underlie passive solar design and how building orientation, architecture and construction materials take advantage of these natural processes to provide a significant portion of a home's space heating, cooling and daylighting. You will also learn to calculate how much glazing and thermal storage you will need and how to meet the requirements for the $1500 Oregon State Residential Energy Tax Credit.
