Solar Power Taken to a Whole New Level

Eco friendly architecture is a trend that is starting to catch on all over the world. One of the most innovative green architects is Ralph Disch, a german business owner that has dedicated his life to designing eco friendly buildings with mainly the sun in mind.

It is widely known that solar energy is a great alternative energy source that is less harmful to the environment. Ralph Disch has taken this idea to a whole new level. He basically turns homes into individual power plants! Possibly his most creative and effective building is his own house, which was his inspiration, and much of Germany’s inspiration to starting the solar movement.  The house is mounted on a pole that allows it to rotate throughout the day with the sun, allowing the home to take full advantage of the suns energy. Solar panels that Disch mounted on his roof generate more energy than the house uses! The home’s finished off with plumbing that reuses water and utilizes rainwater. Plenty of other cool green gadgets are featured throughout the house, making this a truly sustainable home. This house has already motivated others to make the switch to eco friendly homes, and I hope to see this concept keep growing.

    Wow! Yes, that’s a whole new level. I hope it inspires lots and lots of people to go solar. I work with Sharp and have been doing some research on solar power for homes. This is the first time I’ve come across a house that rotates so that the home can take full advantage of the sun. This clean and renewable energy source will always be here. solar power for homes
