I’m so eager to get The Solar Patriot into the hands of those who need it most — people fighting on the front lines from Nevada to Florida for solar rights today — that I’ve decided to make the whole book available for free download.
I’ll be releasing sections of the book over the next few months, in order. So, to start with, here’s the Preface and all the stuff that goes before, from the inside front cover to the table of contents.
And of course, endorsements by leading advocates for solar power from both the left and right. For example, consider these two:
Erik Curren has produced a solar-revolution manual that should inform, inspire, and energize anyone who believes in our inalienable right to a clean energy future.
Executive Director, Sierra Club
The ability to use solar power at home helps keep your family more secure while helping America achieve a greater degree of energy independence. So, it’s no wonder that support for solar and other clean energy is growing on the conservative side of the political spectrum. For conservatives and others who want to help their neighbors join America’s clean energy revolution, The Solar Patriot is an indispensable source of good information and inspiration.
President & CEO, Conservatives for Clean Energy
In today’s nasty political environment, where Democrats and Republicans spend too much time shouting at each other and just trying to score points for their team, regardless of what’s best for the country, it’s encouraging to see people on both sides agree on one issue…solar power.
Could solar be the cause that helps bring Americans of all beliefs back together again? Could solar unite citizens across political divides and make politics meaningful again?
Check out the other endorsements from both liberals and conservatives.
And then read the Preface to learn how today’s battle for solar rights is like the battle that American patriots fought in 1776 for their rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Like each chapter of the book, the Preface begins with a quote from the American Revolution. This one is from an recruiting poster for George Washington’s Continental Army.
I hope its rousing call will inspire you to enlist in today’s peaceful but equally important battle for solar rights.
Will you answer the call?
— Erik Curren, The Solar Patriot
