Drawing on his own experience as a local elected official and citizen lobbyist at all levels of government, Erik wanted to write an easy-to-use guide to help ordinary citizens to become effective champions for more solar power in America.
The Solar Patriot is Erik Curren’s third book and his second on solar power. For two decades Erik has worked as a communications consultant and advocate for solar power, renewable energy and climate solutions.
Erik is also a history buff and a big fan of the American Revolution. He thinks that the biggest challenge facing today’s American patriots is to move the nation towards clean energy independence.
Based on his study of American history, Erik thinks that lessons from the past can inspire and motivate solar supporters today to find their inner patriot and stand up for solar as a powerful way to promote life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
