Sola Roof

The Sola Roof Goal is to transform our homes and communities through an Open Source initiative for Sustainable Living sponsored by and based on the work of Richard Nelson and other pioneers of the Liquid Bubble Insulation and Liquid Solar technologies. Sola Roof is at a very early stage of development with no true scientific data to support the claims that are advanced here by inventors and practitioners. Our results to date include several operational field units that show promising potential and we encourage the scientific and university based students and researchers to collaborate with our DIY community. This Sola Roof Wiki will provide a means to collaborate, build relationships, find support for personal change and an opportunity for business networking as we use the Blue Green concepts for transparent roof systems to create ecological, "living structures" which provide comfortable, efficient and sustainable shelters for people, plants, and livestock. In this Wiki, you will find sections where we are developing our Sola Roof Community; the Sola Roof Tech area for DIY plans for Do-It-Yourself construction; the ideas and concepts of the non exploitive Gift Economy, and a burgeoning Open Eco Community in which to participate, learn, and share your knowledge.

The Sola Roof is a totally "new and improved" approach to: 1. Structure Tech – strong, light metal Structures 2. Fabric Tech – high strength, high transparency Glazing 3. Liquid Solar Tech – for Solar Controlled Environments 4. Bubble Tech – for dynamic liquid Insulation & Shading 5. Phyto Tech – algae biomass culture for Bio Fuel 6. Open Eco Design - a collaboration to develop the ecological life support systems required for self reliant homes and communities
