Doug Kalmer's Solar Projects


Doug Kalmer has contributed 9 great solar and renewable energy projects to Build-It-Solar.  Full details are provided below for each project.



The 9 projects cover the passive solar home that he built in the 80's as well associated passive greenhouse, solar water heaters, and an efficient  masonry stove.



Doug has been "walking the walk" on low impact and sustainable living since the 80's and there is much to learn from he and his wife's approach to living.
