Soft cover, 8" x 10", 260 pages
Having weaned themselves completely from fossil fuels in their conventional 1930s urban house, Stephen and Rebekah Hren provide a map for others to do the same. Their book shows first how to reduce energy consumption, then to retrofit existing homes to obtain all heating, cooling, cooking, refrigeration, hot water, and electricity from renewable sources. The Hrens also provide advice on sustainable, low-impact methods of transportation and home gardening. These practical approaches, many of which are suitable for renters as well as owners, fit anyone's budget and can be implemented over time to progressively liberate a home from fossil-fuel dependency.
