Cutting through the confusing requirements and costs, the book allows average homeowners to find solutions that best fit their set-up, lifestyle and budget by explaining each possible energy solution with clear, practical illustrations and straight-forward descriptions.

From which type of solar panel fits your roof and sun exposure to finding the most efficient part of your yard to set up a small wind turbine to determining if geothermal energy is an option, Renewable Energy for Your Home is packed with hints, tips and do-it-yourself instructions to reduce carbon footprints and save on ever-rising energy bills.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Authors of numerous DIY and self-sufficiency books, the Bridgewaters tackle a wide array of alternative energy. Each system is well explained, but the authors do not walk homeowners through equipment installation. Also, many of these alternative energy scenarios will not work realistically within city limits or in an established community with codes. Buy where needed.
