Stephen and Rebekah Hren discuss A Solar Buyer's Guide for the Home and Office

Stephen and Rebekah Hren authored The Carbon-Free Home a couple of years back, and they’ve just released a new book entitled A Solar Buyer’s Guide for the Home and Office: Navigating the Maze of Solar Options, Incentives, and Installers.

In the following video, Stephen and Rebekah give an introduction to the book and their motives for writing it, as well as detailing some of the excellent tips and tools readers will glean from it. Have a look!
