Title: Hybrid kicker presents the best of both worlds

This system uses a sunspace or passive gain area in tandem with an active collector array. The basic operation takes stratified warm air from the top of the sunspace and runs it up through the collector array. This allows the temperature in the sunspace to be kept at a controlled level and the air to then be boosted to a higher temperature for storage and retrieval purposes. (MHR)
