A few days ago, my brother sent me a link to a YouTube video that he described as “compelling and thought provoking”. Now, my brother is certainly not the type of person who’s prone to exaggeration or overstatement. So, naturally, his comments piqued my interest, and I quickly found the time to watch the one-hour video.

I’ve embedded the video into this post, but let me give you some brief details before you click play…

Let’s take a look now at familiar domestic solar-energy technologies and designs, but with special emphasis on seeing how a South-facing house optimises their benefits.
