Summary
"Solar power was once the domain of futurists and environmentally minded suburbanites. Today it is part of mainstream America--and the solar industry is booming. Beginning with his solar-powered home in Massachusetts, Philip Warburg travels the country to introduce readers to a surprising array of pioneers who are spearheading America's solar revolution, from business leaders and politicians across the spectrum to students committed to greening their campuses. Those in pollution-ravaged industrial areas and Native American groups alike are finding that solar offers the key to revitalizing their communities--all while weaning the country off of fossil fuels. Harness the Sun offers a grounded, persuasive vision of America's energy future--one fueled by clean, renewable sources of power, with solar at center stage."--
Summary
A seasoned environmental advocate chronicles the remarkable ascent of solar energy in a range of applications to assess its potential for securing future American interests
