About this book

For all those seeking either to supplement their traditional fuel-burning furnace or to revamp their home, this book has what they need to get started. They'll learn about the most progressive and advanced options as well as tried and true energy conservation techniques. They'll learn how much each method costs, and how quickly they will recoup any investment. Also including a chapter on alternative-fuel cars, this book has been revised and updated with the most recent stats, technology, costs, and advice.

It is a must for anyone - urbanite, suburbanite, or rural dweller - who relies on traditional oil-burning sources but has decided it's high time to be proactive both about cutting fuel costs and achieving freedom from fossil fuel dependence.

Those concerned or curious about energy conservation or looking to save a buck or two by changing wasteful habits should pick up this book.-- "Newsday"
"Here's a suggestion: spend the equivalent of about five gallons and educate yourself about alternative power sources and doable ways to save energy. ...Woodside's book is one investment that should pay off quickly,""-- Columbia Daily Tribune
