I am all in favor of solar house..simulations...appliances..interactivity etc: you guys are doing good!
but I have a kind of reservation..
As I am going through -*-solar training-*-..I am realizing with the passage of time that solar appliances OR panels etc can be damaged through severe & wild weather conditions..like rain, thunder storm etc..
I am asking..is any one thinking in this direction..how one can weather proof solar houses?
Any update or development in this area OR I am thinking like a paranoid.
OR we are at the mercy of wild mother nature.

You guys have really done commendable job..Solar house is ideal in today's situation and I really appreciate your effort..
