Welcome to our site, where you can find cutting-edge and all-in-one solution to save your monthly energy bills and increase your property value by turning to the sun for the source of all energy uses in your residential or commercial building!

If you know both the Japan’s OM Solar House and BIPV concepts, then you will know that our system is the perfect match and union of these two concepts! Period.

Solar HVAC is short for Solar Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning, which aims to restore the traditional HVAC system for the better. Instead of using gas or electricity to heat your house in winter, we use the sun to turn its radiation energy directly into HEAT with a whopping efficiency as high as 50%. For summer cooling, we collect and store night cool air after sunset to be used for the day!

Net Zero is a term to define an energy efficient building’s energy production being equal to its consumption. Normally when people hear about a net-zero house, they tend to think that this type of house can only be built with a much higher cost and tighter insulation, involving the German Passive House concept and Photovotaic solar panels – both are indeed very expensive to achieve and use. However, with CRE Green’s introduction of heat collecting panels and smart air and electronic controls into the whole picture, net zero becomes an easier and less costly way to achieve.

BIPV stands for Building Incorporated PhotoVoltaic panels use to produce electricity in a way that is different from the traditional approach. When solar PV panels are incorporated with Solar HVAC and Net Zero, you will see the big synergistic effect for all the three!

If this is your first time here, we highly recommend that you check this page first: create.solar/core-all-in-one-solution.

This is the educational site for CreateGreens.com, a forerunner of smart all-in-one home energy solution: Solar HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning), Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV), Solar Hot Water, Solar Driveway, Solar Pool, Solar Canopy, Solar Railings and other things related. If you are a home owner, home builder, or property developer, then you have come to the right place to save big and increase your profit margins. The best of all, it is the smart and green energy solution to our planet.

Core of our all-in-one green energy solution for any buildings

The diagram you see above is the general layout, showing how the core of everything, solar heating, works. Clicking here to see a better and larger diagram (real picture at the bottom of this page). The following slide shows even better the principle behind the whole system:

Here is the nutshell. Houses built from foundation using our system feature a south-facing roof which is hollow, allowing air to flow inside. As the roof’s exterior warms from sunlight exposure, fresh air is drawn inside from vents within the BIPV panels or heat collecting panels. As the panel surface heats in the sun, so does the air inside the cavity which rises to the ridge. The hot air then passes through a fan-driven handling unit, forcing it downward through a large vertical duct. The ground floor is typically elevated above the foundation to form a plenum. The hot air enters the interior through floor vents placed throughout the house. The following hand-drawn schematic is a better presentation of the whole thing:

During night time while there is no sun, the heat in concrete and the exchange space gets slowly released out so that the room temperature will not drop drastically. In certain provinces that are very cold, an additional heating source is built in as a backup, see two diagrams below:

Note that the whole process gets controlled smartly so that everything works in unison. We did not forget the hot summer. The following two schematics show that we’ve got both the summer daytime and nighttime scenarios covered:

Beside solar heating, we can also install BIPV solar panels on your roof and water tank in your basement. The former allows you produce enough electricity to sell to the grid in summer times, while the latter provides the needed hot water due to the solar heating – you can call it “solar hot water” if you want to.

One word about our electricity producing solar panels: to save your cost of having to buy the storage batteries, we do not use any storage battery at the moment. There is a better setup: hook up the whole of our electricity unit to the grid through a NET meter. This way, you can sell to the grid or get power from the grid automatically, whenever the system sees the need.

Can you incorporate this new system into an existing house? Yes, we are actually retrofitting it to an old house right now in Kelowna, BC and the address is 727 Cassiar Crescent which is also UBCO’s living lab – click here for more information on this conversion.

Catching moments of collecting cool air after sunset

After we had finished installing roof collection panels, air path pipes, air handing unit, system sensors and other related hardware and plumbing parts, we test run the system on daily basis. In the beginning we had problems to run the system in summer night cool air intake mode. After adjusting the system settings and the …

Test running CRE solar HVAC system for set C

After making all electrical connections involving three system built-in solar panels, air handling control board, exterior and air collection temperature sensors (room temperature sensor is built inside the display panel), WiFi setup and connecting the heat exchanging coil in the air handling unit to a water tank, we test run the system in both the …

Install System Solar Panels for Sets A and C, Install Top Covers and BIPV Panels for Set C

In fact the job was done on July 22, 2018 but only to have time to post about it today. See the following pictures and captions for the whole procedure… First we installed system solar panels for both sets A and C – two panels for each set to power the running of air handling …
