Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
The renewable nature of solar power, as opposed to non-renewable sources such as fossil fuels, makes it a significant player in the twenty-first century's search for eco-friendly energy. Solar power just needs a sunny day to be plentiful. It is non-polluting and, so far, almost untapped in North America, yet it has great potential to help revolutionize the production and delivery of energy. The different methods of producing solar power, such as solar thermal and photovoltaic technology, as well as the problems that impede the development of solar power (mainly cost), possible solutions and methods of integrating solar power into existing power supply chains are described in concise language and clearly presented examples. Color photographs with extensive captions set in red text and colorful graphics expand the content information. The book concludes with a glossary and an index. This book, one of the "Future Energy" series, would be a good addition to an elementary or middle school science classroom or library. Reviewer: Hazel Buys
