A 16′ x 32′ SunCatcher constructed on site with structural insulating panels (SIPs), the Carolina Mountain SunCatcher combines science, research, knowledge and technology data gathered from our previous models and incorporates it into an automated passive solar greenhouse that outlasts and outperforms all other greenhouses.
A 12′ x 24′ SunCatcher constructed on site from blueprints that will be available soon.
An experimental SunCatcher assembled by students at the Newton-Conover High School in central North Carolina used to teach many subjects, the Newton Conover is a large, 18’x46′ institutional/ commercial model that utilizes a unique underground venting system.
Our original proof-of-concept SunCatcher in Boone, NC, the Parkway SunCatcher was built about 15 years ago and will grow tomatoes all winter with ZERO input of supplemental energy. This level of thermal performance remains our goal and focus for all of our SunCatcher designs. This unit also served as the prototype for our Laurel Ridge SunCatcher.
Located at Laurel Ridge Moravian Camp & Conference Center off the Blue Ridge Parkway in western North Carolina, the Laurel Ridge SunCatcher was built using the Parkway model’s thermal performance with a natural, convective ventilation system.
