Renewable Energy Author, Educator, Speaker, & Consultant
Are you ready for renewable energy?
I’m here to help.
I’ve named my Web site “renewablereality.net” for two reasons:
• You CAN make renewable energy a reality in your life.
• You may need a reality check to attain your goals and to avoid disappointment.
I’ve lived off-grid with renewable energy technologies for more than 30 years, and have written, lectured, taught, and consulted on these topics for more than half of that time. I’ve helped thousands of people understand the renewable energy options, prioritize their goals, and take a practical and realistic approach to energy efficiency and renewable energy. I hope this Web site furthers that work, and I’m available to help you.
