Incremental Solar

Does anybody know what does “incremental solar” means?

Is this a system by which you begin with passive solar strategies to eventually add more active solar strategies?

Hi @mingo.draft ,

I’m afraid I’ve never heard the term “incremental solar” before. Generally, you want to maximize the passive strategies as much as possible and use active strategies only as needed. Perhaps you saw a source referring to adding incremental solar strategies, meaning that they were taking steps towards utilizing more passive strategies?

I’m not seeing the term “incremental solar” in any of the books I own. Wish I could be of more help on this.

Has anyone else ran across this phrase before?


Thanks Darion!
