Passive Solar Design

A cross-section of a home and different sun angles shows how passive solar may be achieved.

The house is designed to have more windows on the south side with overhangs above. The diagram shows that in the winter, the sun would be at a low enough angle for the sun to shine in the windows. In the summer, when the sun is higher, the windows would be shaded by the overhangs.
