Available exclusively through this site at a 30% discount, the latest edition includes key information you need to make the best long-term choices for self reliance.
The Solar Living Sourcebook has been around for many years, but its authors have not let the book fall behind the times. The latest edition is on top of all of the latest trends in alternative energy systems: thin-film solar panels, building integrated photovoltaics, low-speed wind turbines, heat-recovery ventilators. You name the technology, it's discussed in detail in this book.
I like this book because it manages to satisfy two types of readers simultaneously: building professionals and general readers interested in gaining some self reliance.
If you're new to solar, you can skim along and get a broad knowledge of your options—but if you're an architect or builder, you can dig deeper into the many graphs, charts and data tables to weigh the pros and cons of each type of system, and see if the numbers work for you.
From elaborate diagrams about weathersealing homes to analysis of whether solar tracking hardware is worth your while, the information is so dense that you'll want to keep the book around for years as a reference, not just a quick read.
Anyway, the book speaks for itself, the product of some of the best innovation and troubleshooting of three decades of solar power advocacy.-Editor
