Energy Systems and End Users: An Architect’s 30-Year Journey


We recently installed a solar hot-air collection system at West Patent Elementary, part of the Bedford Central School District, in suburban New York. For this project all the elements for renewable energy came together: a good building sited properly for solar collection, an enlightened Owner willing to invest, and a product able to perform. For me, installation of the solar wall represents the realization of ideas of sustainability more than 30 years in the making.
