Review by Publisher Summary 1

Craddock, a journalist, outlines how to use alternative energy sources such as solar, wind, biomass, geothermal energy, and hydropower. He discusses their pros and cons, how they work and what makes them efficient, and areas where they need improvement. He also describes several case studies of their use, with instructions on how to build solar panels, battery chargers, and ovens, biogas generators, wind turbines, and other do-it-yourself projects.
