Hello! I've caught the live-off-the-land bug like you all and I just love learning how easy all the solutions are, and yet they're not mainstream at all.
Anyways, I did a search on here and didn't find anything about annualized geo solar. Does anyone have any experience with, or opinion of this design method.
You can read about it here: http://www.greenershelter.org/index.php?pg=3
It sounds very similar to "Passive Annual Heat Storage" (PAHS) but a simpler and cheaper way of implementing it.
I'll be "getting to work" in northern Michigan where there isn't much sun during the winter months so a standard passive solar design wont cut it. My plan is to
build a fully passive, sustainable, greenhouse with a 1000gal aquaponics system inside. Since I'll be raising tilapia fish, they don't like it when it gets too chilly
as it does most of the year in Mi. Ill also have a rocket mass heater as backup.
So this AGS system sounds like a dream come true but it's hard to find much info on it besides that one site. Or if there's any other building methods you're
aware of for my particular climate I'd love to hear about them.
Thanks! Keep up the great work.
