Homestead Alternatives

 HOMESTEAD ALTERNATIVES has been developing alternative energy solutions for homes and businesses since 1979.  Our mission is to design energy efficient buildings that are both cost effective and easy on the environment.  We believe that passive solar design and energy conservation should be standard components of every building.

With over 28 years of experience, we can help you find a way to harness the energy of the sun. Whether you have an active solar project, passive solar project, energy conservation requirements, or alternative power needs, we would love to share our passion and expertise with you.

For those of you that are looking to build a passive solar home, site selection and development services can help you avoid irreversible mistakes.  We can measure your solar and wind potential, collect site specific data, and perform detailed heat load and solar gain analysis.  If you want to include solar design into an existing building, we can assist with planning and help you to evaluate of the solution that works best for your region and lifestyle.

We have taken the science of solar design from the ancient Greeks, Romans and Aztecs.  Utilizing new and often high tech materials, allows us to improve the performance of an already proven system.  We spend hundreds of hours, each year, doing research and testing  new or improved building materials and methods.  If you are trying to make sense of all of the "GREEN" products and programs, we are ready to help.  Please take a look at our approach to making sustainable building design work for you.
