ROOFTOP REVOLUTION

 

ABOUT THE BOOK: The ascent of solar energy is upon us. The production of solar-generated electricity has risen exponentially in the last few years, and employment in the solar industry has doubled since 2009. Meanwhile, electricity from coal has declined to pre–World War II levels as the fossil fuel industry continues to shed jobs.

In "Rooftop Revolution," Danny Kennedy systematically refutes the lies spread by solar’s opponents—that it is expensive, inefficient, and unreliable; that it is kept alive only by subsidies; that it can’t be scaled; and many other untruths. He shows that we need a rooftop revolution to break the entrenched power of the coal, oil, nuclear, and gas industries. Kennedy contends that now is the time to move away from the dangerous energy sources of the past and unleash the amazing potential of the sun.
