This blog is maintained by the staff of SOLAR TODAY, an award-winning magazine published by the American Solar Energy Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the use of solar energy, energy efficiency, and other sustainable technologies in the United States.

I enjoy tinkering in my passive solar workshop that also has an active solar power source. Aside from solar I spend al of my free time building cool projects for my grand-daughters. - (Read more)
