As more and more people are looking at how to “get off the grid” and start investigating alternative sources of energy, it’s interesting to look at some case studies on solar power.

Going Solar in the Snow is a must-read article at WorldChanging. The article profiles three families in the US – the Compaan family of Ohio, the Watson family of Massachusetts, and the Lord family of Maine. They all use solar power as their primary energy sources in their homes, which proves that you don’t need to live in the sunny desert to make solar power a viable proposition.

The Watson Solar House example even includes a useful spreadsheet that calculates the return on investment of solar energy for your house.
