Solar powered homes are great for the environment and are safer than conventionally powered homes with less chance of fire. These homes can either be active or passive. Active houses use the sun to run it. They don't rely on the power company for electricity at all, while passive houses are generally built from the onset to make the most use of the sun. For example, adobe style house plans are passive since they use mud bricks that absorb the sun’s heat during the day to help heat the home at night. The best solar house plans combine both active and passive technologies.
