The effect of solar power and cooling load peaking simultaneously is a huge advantage. But most air conditioning load would dissappear given more effective building design coupled with geothermal cooling.

The ground is around 60 degrees in most areas that need cooling. And there is plenty of PV recoverable sunlight to run electric powered circulating pumps to cool buildings using that ground temperature.

www.isomax-az.com is offering a Zero Energy Home + solar system + electric or PHEV auto as the first home in a new sub-division in Apache Junction, Arizona. This will enable a "Zero Energy Lifestyle" alternative. Take a moment to calculate how much money you'd save every month if you had no electric utility bill, and you did not have to buy gasoline for 75% to 90% of your driving. Consider, that is "after-tax" savings. How much of a raise at your job would you need in order to have that much additional discretionary income every month? This type of home will virtually pay you to live in it! Check out the web site !

I no longer think PV is a good idea to reduce peak demand in the southwest US. Looking at the SMUD report and TEP’s 4.6 MWe PV plant (https://greenwatts.com/pages/solaroutput.asp ) it is clear that the solar peak precedes peak demand.

More evidence that PV is not a very good way to make electricity.

I agree to the other commenter, An energy efficient house starts with the structure itself.

Hat’s off. Well done, as we know that “hard work always pays off”, after a long struggle with sincere effort it’s done.

This is a great information. With energy prices going up these days everywhere, it's about time to think of the alternative energy sources like solar panels.

This statistics really help to analyze the current situation in the market. In this business statistics are the main thing which helps us to look up at the market and forecast the situation in the future.

You need to build a energy efficiant house from the ground up. Its not easy to convert a existing property
