Renewable Energy Solutions
for the Far North

Arctic Sun is your one-stop partner for everything related to renewable energy systems in the Far North. Our new retail store and office are now open regular business hours, and the full service web-store will be open for business the end of summer 2012.

We offer design service, products and installation for residential and commercial renewable energy systems. From solar PV and solar thermal to wind turbines and geothermal heat pumps, we are able to serve all your alternative energy needs. In addition, we carry a selection of high efficiency building products and passive house components. These include top performing boilers with solar thermal integration capabilities, and efficient passive house certified heat recovery ventilators from Europe with ground based preheating loops for pre-warming incoming ventilation air.

Currently, we are developing our product line of highly efficient ARCTIC entry doors with an R-value of up to R-60 and multiple lock points for airtight seals. Additionally, we are developing exterior thermal shutter systems that will provide a viable solution to the huge energy deficit created by windows during long cold winter nights. Until glazing technology catches up with the extreme requirements in our arctic regions, thermal shutters offer an attainable solution needed to build truly efficient buildings.

Arctic Sun is looking forward to powering and sustaining Alaska’s future.

All the Best,

The Arctic Sun Team

Subarctic Passive House Case Study:

A Superinsulated Foundation and Vapor Diffusion-Open Walls

This is an independent study of the passive solar home built by REINA’s Owner/Builder Thorsten Chlupp conducted by the Cold Climate Housing Research Center. Thorsten’s home demonstrates that buildings in subarctic climates can perform well without traditional heating systems, and it presents an innovative alternative for high-efficiency construction.
