First Solargon 30

The Solargon 30 pictured is the first to go up and is located in Colorado on the Wyoming border. It will be an off-grid retreat for the study of energy efficiency. With wall and roof panels rated at R42 this passive solar octagon is located at nearly 8,000 feet on the high plains of northern Colorado. Assembly of walls and roof panels was less than three days.
It will utilize a large solar hot water storage system with radiant floor heat and a PV system for power. For more pictures of the project click here.
