This volume is one of five composing the final report written by BE&C Engineers, a Boeing subsidiary. Under contract to the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), Boeing provided management support for the Residential Solar Heating Demonstration. The demonstration, part of the National Program for Solar Heating and Cooling, began in 1975. During the next four years, HUD awarded over 900 grants to builders/developers who were to install solar systems on dwellings new or retrofitted; 497 grants actually resulted in construction. Volume I gives the general history of the demonstration from the contractor's viewpoint. The other volumes cover specific technical issues.
Volume II-Solar Repair Program
Volume III-High Temperature Exposure of Wood Structures in Solar Systems
