Many construction resources are used when researching for solar knowledgeable people and organizations. The following list are the sources that were very helpful to us when we needed them as we tried to determine if this earth sheltered style of living was for us. Most of these people are in business to either build a complete home or supply the components that are used in the home. Other sources we found in the library or from organizations like the AEA (Alternate Energy Association). Most of them in the following list are on the net at this time. Those who are, will have their E-mail address and URL as part of their address. The others will have to be contacted by "Snail Mail" or phone.

Additional web locations are added to this list as we find them and receive permission to link to their pages. Enjoy the page and good hunting. Come back often as we will add more as time permits.

UltraFlo Plumbing Systems

This is a corporation that supplied a unique plumbing system using only a single line to each device in the system. The water is turned on and off via 12 volt solenoids. Mixer valves are used to provide warm water. Pushbuttons at the sink or shower locations are used to activate the solenoids to supply water. Water usage savings from standard two line faucet systems are significant; ranging from 16 to 25% per year. Mr. Doug Didion of Ultraflo passed away in 2003 and the business is in a warehouse in Sandusky. Unfortunately no action has been taken with the company.

This is a site for the coordination of information of GLOBAL photovoltaic (PV) technologies, applications, history, and projections. PV is a semiconductor technology that silently converts light energy into direct-current (dc) electricity, with no moving parts, burning no fuel, and creating no pollution. These are the building blocks used in what we commonly call solar collectors. We found this after we constructed this home page site. It is well worth a visit. Y'all come back now!
