How can solar energy be harnessed and how can the heat of the summer sun be controlled?

Solar energy is absorbed in winter via most of the window area on the south side of the home, then stored in a thermal mass and redistributed as heat.
The summer sun is controlled with the aid of a device that allows the sunlight to pass through while preventing the direct rays from entering the home. This may be accomplished with shade screens or by roof angles calculated according to the direction of the sun.
