Solar Energy Now.
Rose, Harvey, Ed.
Twenty articles addressing different aspects of solar energy are compiled in this book. They represent the views of different governmental and non-governmental organizations, members of congress, and other individuals including, for example, Barry Commoner and Amory Lovins. Topics discussed include the need for federal support, passive solar techniques, gasohol, future prospects, solar communities, rights to solar access, wind energy, economic factors, transitional concerns, the role of electric utilities, history, employment opportunities, policy, and soft energy studies. An overriding theme of the book is that solar energy is technically and economically feasible but that increased support from the federal government is necessary to encourage solar research and development and to correct current imbalances in energy prices and free market operations resulting from huge subsidies to conventional energy sources.
