Power With Nature
Power with Nature: Renewable Energy Options for Homeowners
Updated 3rd Edition
by Rex A. Ewing
Take a big step toward self-reliance by harnessing free energy from the sun, wind, water, and earth to power and heat your home. Power with Nature will get you started on the right path, whether you are connected to the grid or far from the nearest power pole.
"Should be mandatory reading for all environmentally conscious folk.
This book is immensely useful and readable, and enjoyable. Whoever says
conservation and science are stuffy subjects needs to have this book to
reverse their view."
— amazon.com reviewer
"Plenty of energy guides for homeowners advocate
getting off the grid; but few do such a good job of explaining just how
to go about it. Power With Nature is essential for rural homeowners. An outstanding, highly recommended guide."
