Today we have a couple of stories the first is about Danny Kennedy who is the aythor of a recent book called Rooftop Revolution: HowSolar Power Can Save Our Economy -- and Our Planet. He is the founder of Sungevity one of the nations largest solar energy companies and a former Greenpeace activist. The book is a great all aroind introduction into solar power and it's near limitless potential. Here from Alternet is a story about Danny and his book.
"Heeten Kalan: Your book is titled Rooftop Revolution. Why do you think solar power is a revolution in the making?
Danny Kennedy: Solar power represents a change in electricity that has a potentially disruptive impact on power in both the literal sense (meaning how we get electricity) and in the figurative sense of how we distribute wealth and power in our society. Fossil fuels have led to the concentration of power whereas solar’s potential is really to give power over to the hands of people. This shift has huge community benefits while releasing our dependency on the centralized, monopolized capital of the fossil fuel industry. So it’s revolutionary in the technological and political sense."
