Residential Solar Design Review: A Manual on Community Architectural Controls and Solar Energy Use.
Jaffe, Martin; Erley, Duncan
Presented are architectural design issues associated with solar energy use, and procedures for design review committees to consider in examining residential solar installation in light of existing aesthetic goals for their communities. Recommended design review criteria include the type of solar system being used and the ways in which the system relates to the building's design, the building site, and the neighborhood. Also described are the appearance and functions of various types of solar energy systems. Technical appendices survey the design review process and present some proposed and adopted design criteria for solar buildings and installations. (Author/WB)
