Survey of Solar Buildings.
Gray, Robert; Baker, Steven
This survey brings together information concerning the growing number of buildings utilizing solar energy and is designed to facilitate the comparison of specific characteristics of the buildings. The 66 U.S. entries are divided into five regions, arranged by state, and roughly by date within each state. Seven entries are from other countries. A separate entry for each building lists in a standard form detailed information, followed by additional comments, a bibliography, and a drawing of the building. Information listed includes building location; climatological factors; characteristics of the building, collector, and storage tank; auxiliary energy sources; heat collection and distribution methods; hot water supply; automatic controls; cooling; and performance specifications.
