Today while talking with a collegue at one of my new contracts, we got to talking about construction and solar power. He asked if I had ever read the HomePower Magazine. This was a new magazine for me, but a quick web search came up with a great site which is the HomePower magazine. Here is a little blurb from their website:

Since 1987, we’ve dedicated more than 100 issues to renewable energy and sustainable living solutions. That means comprehensive coverage of solar, wind, and microhydro electricity, energy efficiency, solar hot water systems, space heating and cooling, green building materials and home design, efficient transportation, and much, much more.
Whether you’re a do-it-yourselfer or not, off-grid or on-grid, Home Power is here to help you make informed decisions about your energy use. We provide extensive product information, homeowner testimonials, buyer advice, and “how-to” instructions.

Their site is easy to navigate and is broken down into 6 clean sections: Solar, Wind, Water, Design, Build and Miscellaneous. The solar section has already given me more hope than any other read, that one day I too might be able to have solar power on my house.
