A passive solar design for your home can warm it in the winter with little outside power and help to keep it cool in the summer. However, it won’t operate your lights, heat your water, power your computer or television, or keep you completely comfortable in summer. For that you need energy.
By now, the vast majority of us are aware that we must end our deadly dependence on fossil fuels for energy without using nuclear energy as a substitute. In order to do that, we must convert to clean, renewable technologies such as solar and wind. The fact that renewable energy installed at home also saves us money is not only a definite plus, it also offers a return on our money.

So, if you are going to heat a pool, do it with solar!
