On Saturday, May 4, the University of Alaska Fairbanks–Bristol Bay Campus hosted the 3rd annual Dillingham Solar Tour in conjunction with the Alaska Solar Tour and the ASES National Solar Tour.

Along with solar, small wind and efficient wood boiler technologies, a highlight was Tom Marsik and Kristin Donaldson’s home. Largely based on the Passive House standard, the 600-square-foot (56-square-meter) house features 28-inch-thick (71-cm-thick) walls and is heated almost entirely by internal heat gains.

The house was recently recognized as the tightest residential building in the world by the World Record Academy.

    Tom, Can you help us develop a solar panel system for an addition we are adding this summer to the south side of our house here in Dillingham, on Bayside Drive? Thank you , Johanna Bouker
