Publisher Comments:

Fossil fuels make up 90 percent of the world’s energy sources. Fossil fuels provoke wars, make us ill, and endanger the planet. And they’re running out. Have you ever felt like declaring your independence? Can the average American begin to move away from traditional energy sources without pulling out of society? The answer is Yes! A revolution is afoot and it’s happening quietly in homes across the country. There are other options beyond oil and coal, and it only takes access to information to begin making the switch.

The Homeowner’s Guide to Energy Independence is a guide to the most viable and affordable alternative energy sources, including solar panels, wind generators, hydrogen fuel cells, wood, hydro-electric, geothermal heat pumps, and more. Whether you want to moderately supplement your traditional fuel-burning furnace or completely revamp your home, this book has what you need. You’ll learn about the most progressive and advanced options that have become available to the consumer as well as tried and true energy conservation techniques. You’ll learn how much each method costs, and how quickly you will recoup any investment in alternative energy. A chapter covers fuel efficient cars and alternative fuel transportation. Also included is a list of contacts and resources, so you can get started today.

The Homeowner’s Guide to Energy Independence is for all homeowners: urbanites, suburbanites, and rural residents alike. It is for anyone who gets their electricity and heat from traditional oil-burning sources but who wants to be proactive in cutting fuel costs as well as achieving freedom from fossil fuel dependence.

I have not seen the book so I cannot rate it at this time.
What I want to know is does it give details on finding
resources in the Portland area that can help you with
setting up alternative energy sources.
