No one knows.

This is from the Dept. of Energy, and if THEY don't know, then no one knows.

And that doesn't even get into the definition of a "solar house".

Is that passive solar, hot water solar, solar cells, completely independent of the power grid, etc.?

And once built, are they still in operation? Once people see the economics and high maintenance up close ... it doesn't look so good anymore.

You could search solar equipment companies and see if they have a WAG (wild a**ed guess) and use that as your source, but that is all it will be.

Discuss It!
