Summary
A guide to the most viable and affordable alternative energy sources for the everyday consumer--including solar panels, wind generators, hydrogen fuel cells, wood, hydroelectric, geothermal heat pumps, and more. For all those seeking either to supplement their traditional fuel-burning furnace or to revamp their home, this book has what they need to get started. They'll learn about the most progressive and advanced options as well as tried and true energy conservation techniques. They'll learn how much each method costs, and how quickly they will recoup any investment. Also including a chapter on alternative-fuel cars, this book has been revised and updated with the most recent statistics, technology, costs, and advice. It is for anyone--urbanite, suburbanite, or rural dweller--who relies on traditional oil-burning sources but has decided to be proactive both about cutting fuel costs and achieving freedom from fossil fuel dependence.--From publisher description
