A New Look for Greenbelt

Greenbelt Homes' management asked its neighbor, Goddard Space Flight Center, for assistance in setting up a solar energy project. To study effectiveness, Goddard instrumented the building to determine oil consumption, water usage and temperatures. Goddard engineers recorded information for two winter-summer cycles and are now analyzing the data. Preliminary estimates indicate solar collectors save between 40 and 50 percent of oil needed to meet home heating and hot water needs.
