Sun Power by Neville Williams

Whether you know it or not, we will have a solar-powered future!

SUN POWER is a book for doers and dreamers. It will explain what people are doing around the world and in the United States. You will meet some of the people among the millions who have chosen to put the sun at their service, from villages in Africa to suburban America, from rural China to Google’s campus, from thousands of industrial rooftops to America’s huge solar farms.

America, as well as the rest of the world, is on the brink of an energy revolution that can save the planet, and increase peace and prosperity, by harnessing the unlimited power of the sun. After decades of promise and potential, the technology now exists to replace our dangerous addiction to fossil fuels with cheap, clean solar energy . . . one rooftop at a time.

If millions of poor families in the Third World can get their electricity from the sun, Williams asks, why can’t Americans — who are concerned with their rising power bills, dependence on foreign oil, and their carbon footprint — do the same?

The answer is that sun power is here, it works, and can light up a new era of economic and environmental security—if we have the will to seize this historic opportunity. This book is not about predictions or promises. It’s about what’s happening now, all over the world, and what still needs to done.

SUN POWER is "An engaging state of the union by an important leader in solar power."
Kirkus Reviews

Praise for "Chasing the Sun" by Neville Williams

"Chasing the Sun engagingly chronicles the author’s enduring effort to build a solar world.”
Lester R. Brown, president, Earth Policy Institute

“Neville Williams shows how intelligent, local solutions can be found to meet energy needs of communities across Asia and Africa. This should be an eye-opener for donors and policy-makers alike.”
Sir Arthur C Clarke, inventor of the communications satellite

I really loved your book. I got so excited about it I told Hillary and Chelsea to read it, and then made everyone in the Clinton Foundation read it. It's terrific!"
President Bill Clinton (personal comment to the author)
