Solar Heating & Cooling Case Study - Alaska Village Housing Project

Share

Even at the high latitude of Anchorage, AK, more than 60 degrees north of the equator, solar hot water systems are an effective form of energy. On the winter solstice,  Anchorage receives about six and a half hours of  daylight, while six months later on summer solstice, the sun shines for 21 straight hours. When designed correctly, solar hot water systems can be convenient and economical, even in Anchorage.
