Sustainable Design for the 21st Century

SOLATUBE at GreenBuild 2013

By Brent Sauser 

DSCN2744I confess . . . I am a big fan of daylighting, or light harvesting!  Anything we can do to bring the daylight IN and keep artificial lighting OFF during the day time is a DSCN2743big energy saver.  Think about it . . . why should we settle for poor building design that requires energy dependent artificial lighting during the day time, when we can bring the daylight into our interior spaces and benefit from God-given, full spectrum light DSCN2741. . . . FOR FREE.  The RESOURCES page on identifies several daylighting companies that feature all types of products that bring free daylight into interior space.  

We met with Eric Miller, national sales manager of Solatube, at the GreenBuild 2013 convention.  Eric was gracious enough to make a video for that features twoDSCN2742 innovative residential daylighting systems (see below for video).  I was so impressed with the features of the 14” diameter Solatube system that we are planning to have two installed in our home.  

I invite you to watch the video and CLICK HERE to learn more about Solatube and their many great residential, commercial, and industrial daylighting systems.

    Hi Brent,
    I think solatube is a great technique of transfering natural light to your homes and it saves our electricity. Electricity is a non-renewable source of energy therefore need to be preserved for the future.
