This superbly written book describes how large scale solar thermal farms with overnight heat storage, photovoltaic's, and electric vehicle technology will soon dominate the growth of our energy economy. The book explains with numerous pictures and illustrations how solar farms, rooftop photovoltaics and electric cars can be integrated into a new national high voltage DC grid to power the U.S. day and night. You will also learn why solar thermal farm and photovoltaic technology will soon become our cheapest and cleanest national energy source. Solar thermal farms and rooftop photovoltaics already produce 100 times the transportation energy per acre compared to the most advanced biofuels. You will also see the advances in 2 and 4 wheeled lithium battery powered vehicles using electricity costing the equivalent of 65 cents per gallon and re-charge times of only 10 minutes, and how electric vehicles will soon recharge themselves in sunlight using thin film photovoltaic's.
