1. Solar Off Grid Cabin

This cozy cabin is heated by the sun and a small wood stove. While solar power is commonly used to provide electricity in off grid homes, it can also be used passively to warm a house. Placing large south facing windows in your home will bring in the sun’s thermal energy, and you can magnify it many times by incorporating materials with high thermal mass into the construction of your house.

This technique is used in building Earthship homes, which maintain a comfortable room temperature year round.
