In the small but beautiful country of Costa Rica, great luxurious houses that are extremely enery efficient are being built. These houses are called the Solar Vistas. Located in Malpais, these homes are being built on 12 acres of hilltop land. Along with the arcitectural beauty of these homes, they are completely powered by solar energy. The designs will maximize shade which will primarily cool the structures. These vistas will be a top location for American retirees looking to move out of the country. This is a great step in a greener world for all of us. To see more about these vistas go to the company website http://www.solar-vistas.com/.
