Sol Home

Welcome to Solhome.

We’re home to the North Texas and Oklahoma region astronomy club, which was founded in 2003 to help bring the enchanting, dark Texas night sky to the residents of the area. Here at Solhome, we also believe fairly strongly in conserving our earth environment, and are deeply interested in energy efficiency. That is why on our site, you can find articles about solar powered homes, community housing and gardens, and ways to go green, among other like-minded topics.

Yup – we manage to tie it all together here at Solhome. The general rule is if it’s solar-related, you’ll find information about it here on this site.

So, we urge you to find out more. Visit our Solar Homes page for great designs of solar-powered housing options. Go to our Community Housing page to look into ways that groups of people have structured their living arrangements that benefit each other and the group as a whole. Ditto for the environmentally-minded horticulturists which you can learn more about on our Community Gardens page.


We are pleased to announce that even land based casinos are going solar powered. Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. (NYSE: STP), the world’s largest manufacturer of crystalline silicon solar panels, has announced that it completed a 1 megawatt (MW) solar installation for Harrah’s Rincon Casino in Southern California, which is a top resort-gaming destination. As you would expect, the Harrah’s Suntech solar installation is expected to provide the Casino with considerable energy cost savings over time since it can provide enough power to run nearly 90% of the 662-room property’s HVAC system. You would think the Las Vegas casinos would follow suit. On the other hand, if you don’t want to pay the cost of traveling to a land based casino, you can spend far less energy by playing any of your favorite Las Vegas games in the compfort of your own solar powered home. Numerous online gambling sites are reaching out by offering great bonuses to entice people to sign up for online slots for US players, as well as for other online games such as poker, roulette, blackjack, Baccarat, among others.

There are even companies selling unique gift baskets that include organic, handmade, recycled and recyclable products. These baskets make for both socially responsible and environmentally friendly gifts. For instance, eco / green wine gift baskets have wines that are brewed by ecologically aware winemakers whose vineyards are strictly organic. For a wine to be labeled “Organic” it must contain at least 95 percent organically produced ingredients and can not contain added sulfites. There are other sites selling unique organic ecologically friendly spa gift baskets containing only the best natural and organic products, many of which are 100% natural, gluten free vegan skin care products. Want to send a welcoming baby gift basket? Look for organic baby gift baskets filled with gentle organic skin care items, sweet organic onesies, organic toys, and blankets made from organic cotton. In addition there are available online gift baskets filled organic gourmet foods (some are gluten free) along with with fair trade coffees and teas. Some site also include fair trade artisan merchandise in their gift baskets as well. Solar energy is often the source of power for these gift basket companies and their suppliers as they embrace the concept of creating a sustainable world while being committed to preserving our earth and its inhabitants.

Organic lifestyle gift baskets not only show you really care about someone, but also demonstrate your social conscience. By giving a stylish gift basket that contains unique, healthy, chemical and cruelty-free products, you are subtly promoting earth friendly and health-conscious values. We applaud you and hope that more companies will embrace similar philosophies that are solar based as well as being health and earth conscious as possible.

A sustainable world requires affordable standards, and when the balance gets skewed, ideas surface to take advantage of financial inefficiencies.
