This Webinar will be scheduled at a later date. Please contact us to arrange the webinar to your group at a special group rated discount.

How do passive solar buildings work? What are the current guidelines for evaluating project sites and designing passive solar buildings? And…how can you best minimize electric demand, consumption, and environmental costs in your designs? Join industry expert J. Paul Guyer, P.E. for a comprehensive overview of passive solar technology in our upcoming live webinar, How It Works: Passive Solar Buildings.

Passive Solar Design

Passive solar energy is one of the most efficient forms of energy in the world. Not only does it reduce the cost of energy for your company, agency or clients. It also reduces the demand on limited global energy supplies and avoids carbon emissions and other environmental impacts associated with energy production and utilization. The key to passive solar energy efficiency, however, lies in effective site evaluation and schematic design.

Explore how you can reduce building costs, electric demand, and environmental impact by properly evaluating the feasibility of and designing passive solar buildings. Join us for our new webinar!
