    Item Description:

    Knowing where and when the sun shines on your property throughout the year is an essential factor to consider when siting things like garden beds, water storage tanks, buildings, solar panels and solar hot water heaters.

    Similarly, knowing which trees block out the most light can help determine where to clear and where to let grow.

    If you haven’t yet mapped out the sun’s trajectory across your property over the entire year, a solar pathfinder can show you exactly where, when and for how long the sun will shine anywhere on the land, for the entire year, all in one viewing.

    The device uses a transparent, convex plastic dome to provide a panoramic view of the entire site, with all the trees, buildings and other obstacles to the sun plainly visible as reflections on the surface of the dome.

    The sunpath diagram can be seen through the transparent dome at the same time and provides a readout of the relative amount of solar energy available to your site at different times of the day and for each month of the year.

    The solar pathfinder also shows when the sun will rise, set and be blocked out by various objects throughout the day, for each month of the year, in that particular location.

    For more information visit the company’s website http://www.solarpathfinder.com/PF?id=PWqv8SNr

    My background is in permaculture and I am currently working to design and develop a farm on the island. I have been using the solar pathfinder in my own work and would be happy to help you use the solar pathfinder for your own project.

    A standard consultation consists of three readings along with interpretations and recommendations. Additional readings and interpretations are $10 extra.
