    I live in the Pacific Northwest, and our area is known for its weather being grey and rainy 98% of the year, so passive solar applications rarely work like the textbook version. One alternative version for a heated off the grid shower I’ve spotted in the blogosphere runs water through a coiol of 100 or so feet of garden hose through a compost pile. The compost heap gives off heat as the material decomposes, and heats up the water passing through. A great option for an area, where you might not get enough direct sun exposure for heating up enough water.
