BuildItSolar: Solar energy projects for Do It Yourselfers to save money and reduce pollution The Green Guide Solar Water Heating Projects and Plans Solar water heating systems have a good economic payoff, and are manageable systems to install or build as a DIY project. Some of the solar water heating designs are very simple and low cost. You can save as much as $7000 by building your own system. There are just over one hundred projects with full construction details listed below -- all free. The projects range from simple batch heaters for warm climates through closed loop and drain back systems that will work in any climate. One of the systems is our own $1,000 solar water heating system that has provided a solar fraction in excess of 90% through our cold Montana winter. My thanks to the people who have built systems, and then taken the time to send in pictures and descriptions for others to use.

Organic Mechanic - Discover Smart Energy Ice Energy Visualising sustainability « Computing for Sustainability New (Dec 2011): “Sustainable Lens: A visual guide” published by NewSplash available through Amazon. How to convey the essence of sustainability in a few sketched lines? I’m wading through the net and my bookshelves to find examples of the genre. I’m looking for schematics of the notion of sustainability itself rather than the underlying science – greenhouse, carbon, meso climate process, ground water, etc for which there are a zillion diagrams. The list is not meant to be exhaustive, but if I’ve missed your favourite diagram, leave a link and I’ll add it to the list. In no particular order, here’s 100 125 137 158 179 188 218 255 of what I’ve found. 1. “This model recognises that the economy is a subset of society (i.e. it only exists in the context of a society), and that many important aspects of society do not involve economic activity. 2. This model is very very common (google search sustainability Venn). 3. 4. 5. 6. 7 Venn 3 with overlaps named (see also WKU) 8. 9. 12. 13. 14. 16. 17.
