From the Inside Flap:

The New Solar Home features a variety of solar dwellings of different sizes and locales, from 1,600 to 4,000 square feet or more, and in large cities, suburbs, and remote rural sites. From an umbrella home in beautiful California and a stunning luxury condominium in New York to a Chicago brownstone-style home in Illinois and a pueblo-style gem in the foothills of Santa Fe, solar homes have come a long way from the PV-clad creations of the 1980s.

Bonta and Snyder successfully demonstrate that today's solar homes are attractive, good financial investments, and comfortable places for daily living. These exceptional homes are groundbreaking not only in their use of renewable energy but also in their commitment to recycling and repurposing materials.

Get details on why these homeowners decided to go solar, and find out how having a solar home can save you money in the long run. Whether you're looking to build a new home or simply remodel an existing one, the solar beauties within these pages are sure to inspire you to create your own solar sanctuary.
