For those that live in the American southwest, a new solar home model has been created to help come with the extreme temperatures that exist in the desert. The home was designed to combat urban sprawl which is affecting the available resources in areas like Phoenix and Albuquerque.
These solar homes are able to remain cool while using minimal resources to adapt to the desert environment. The home has external vertical screens and a solar shade canopy to maintain a stable temperature.
Along with its external canopy shade fixture it also has an indoor cooling system and plants native to the area that do not require too much water to survive. By using minimal resources this home is efficient and suitable for the conditions of Arizona and New Mexico.
This type of design is perfect for an environment that can be hazardous to live in and leads to overpopulation of the bigger cities. With a more comfortable home that has a cooling system and effective shade covering, residents of these areas will be able to live anywhere in the southwest and cope with the high temperature changes in these regions. The use of solar power also makes it a good option to be environmentally friendly.desert homes, solar power, solar shade
