Rotating solar house collect more energy

A growing rate of energy consumption due to the development in lifestyle has drawn the presumption that soon the earth will face the exhaustion of oil. Thus, initiating the application of an alternative energy in daily life is no longer an option but a must.

While many have been constantly seeking the ways to live an innovative life using the alternative energy, a new solar house designed by a German architect, Ralph Disch, is currently getting the worldwide attention.

Located in one of the well-known eco friendly cities, Freiburg, Germany, this “heliotrope” solar house was introduced through the architecture website ‘Inhabitant’ and is significantly distinguished from former solar houses in design and efficiency.

The former solar houses limit the amount of energy collected. However, this three-story solar house in cylindrical shape is considered truly revolutionary since it moves along the sun by rotating 180 degrees and collects the sufficient amount of energy moment by moment.

Another advantage of this house is its design. Entirely covered in glass and equipped with a tube directly connected to the solar collector plate on the rooftop, the house is in the near-perfect condition to fully circulate the energy it has stored. It is amazing the amount of energy produced in the house exceeds the amount consumed by five times.

In addition, greywater, (filtered water) or rain water is used in this house for drinking and cleaning.

All these features make the house deserve the title “The Best Eco House.”
