"Plenty of energy guides for homeowners advocate getting off the grid, but few do such a good job of explaining just how to go about it. Power With Nature is essential for rural homeowners. An outstanding, highly recommended guide."
— California Bookwatch
"Power With Nature demonstrates that a practical informative book on renewable energy doesn't have to be boring. It takes a technical subject and translates it into a 'how-to' book with an added twist of humor. The entire book communicates well to both the layperson and energy enthusiast."
— Institute of Ecolonomics
"I have read virtually every book that has been written about using solar and wind to power your home and this book is one of the best I have ever read on the subject. I guess I can put my plans to write a book for people who know nothing about PV on hold because this, with a few minor changes, is the book that I would have written.
— Larry Cooper, Kyocera Solar
“It is a fun book, easy to read, delightful illustrations…the appendices are worth the price of the book themselves. And I appreciate the bonuses, e.g. calculating rainwater collection and info on corn and pellet stoves.”
— H. Dana Moran, Colorado Energy Science Center at NREL
"Readers who want to be completely self-reliant, who are looking for cost-effective solutions, or who are somewhere in the middle—all will find something useful here .... Ewing writes in a folksy, informal manner, and readers will find his hands-on primer worthwhile."
