Somewhere on the hills of Southern California is the future home of the Michael Jantzen Solar House. As the pictures depict, the house is going to make full use of the wind turbines that will be built alongside it. The house will be solar heated and naturally cooled and the overhangs in the structure will keep the glass doors shaded during hot weather.
The design also saves water by use of low water shower heads and waterless toilets. As the design shows, there is large area for growing crops and other agriculture. This design is gaining momentum as many people prefer energy-saving houses. This solar and wind-powered house brings about alternative ways to store energy, making full use of the hillside real estate.
