Editorial Reviews

Review

“Those concerned or curious about energy conservation or looking to save a buck or two by changing wasteful habits should pick up this book.”-- Newsday
“Here’s a suggestion: spend the equivalent of about five gallons and educate yourself about alternative power sources and doable ways to save energy. …Woodside’s book is one investment that should pay off quickly.”-- Columbia Daily Tribune

From the Back Cover

Fossil fuels―oil, coal, and natural gas―make up 90 percent of the world’s energy sources. They provoke wars, make us ill, and endanger the planet. They’re running out―and, in case you haven’t noticed, they cost a lot these days. Have you ever felt like declaring your independence? Can the average homeowner 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 America and beyond.
Energy Independence is the essential guide to the most viable and affordable alternative energy solutions―solar panels, wind generators, hydrogen fuel cells, wood, hydroelectric, geothermal heat pumps, and more. Whether you want to supplement your traditional fuel-burning furnace or revamp your home, this book has what you need to get started. You’ll learn about the most 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. Also including a chapter on alternative-fuel cars, this handy book includes the most recent statistics, the latest technological advancements, and an up-to-date assessment of the costs that impact you the most on a day-to-day basis.
Energy Independence is for anyone―urbanite, suburbanite, or rural dweller―who relies on traditional oil-burning sources but has decided that it’s high time to be proactive about cutting fuel costs and achieving freedom from fossil fuel dependence.
