I just spent the last 1/2 hour reading through the website for the Maine Solar House, a great example of solar use. They use 1/2 of their roof for heat/hot water generation, and the other 1/2 for electricity. The site is extremly informative and a great way to learn about the enviormentally friendlly energy source called solar power.
