Sounds like a great resource. Knowing what’s possible and what’s involved in implementing things is half the battle in sustainable building.
what a gorgeous building!
Hi! That page is the champion, ‘n I have been searching for this site for a while now ‘n I’m so fortunate I eventually found it.
I’m 23 years old and doing my masters at Princeton.
I am the kind of guy who loves to try bran-new stuff. Presently I am fabricating my personalized solar panels. I’m managing it all by myself without the assistance of my staff. I’m utilizing the net as the only way to acheive this. I came across a truly brilliant site which explains how to build pv panels and wind generators. The place explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.
I am not exactly sure bout how correct the data given there is. If some experts over here who had experience with these works can have a peak and give your feedback in the page it would be awesome and I’d extremely appreciate it, cauze I really passion solar panel construction.
