For humanity's sake, to manage the necessary substitution of renewable energy sources for the demands we are currently making on fossil fuels, we must increase the use of photovoltaics and other systems world wide by perhaps 35% or more per year. We are calling this great mobilization "Apollo II." Renewable Energy is about to become a profound growth industry, almost as dramatic as the electronic commerce which has been fostered by the emergence of the World Wide Web.
Many members of the American Solar Energy Society and the International Solar Energy Society are university professionals. I would encourage people to consider foreign study. Learn about the Third World, because you're likely to be living in such a world before long anyway (due to the coming of the global Hubbert Peak). Be the first kid on your block to get adjusted to the (sane) life-style of the 21st century!
See our Hot Links above that list Solar Energy resources. For solar water heating and other home uses, we recommend Zomeworks, PO Box 25805, Albuquerque, NM 87125, 505.242.5354.
