Solar Design Associates
P.O. Box 242
In the 35 years since its founding, Steven J. Strong's firm has designed the world's first solar-powered neighborhood, Olympic center, and major-league baseball stadium. (Strong was even brought in by the White House to replace the solar panels that had been removed during the Reagan era.) If SDA's résumé doesn't convince you, the images of its finished projects will. Custom-designed private residences seamlessly incorporate photovoltaics, geothermal heating, and wind power, while the firm's commercial projects continue to break new ground.
