In the spirit of 1776, The Solar Patriot aims to recruit readers as champions for rooftop solar power.
If you think that solar power should become America’s number one energy source, and you’d like to help make it happen, then this is the book you’ve been waiting for.
If you’re a homeowner who already has installed solar panels on your roof or in your yard, this book is definitely for you.
The Solar Patriot is also for anyone who supports more solar power in America. And history buffs will enjoy connecting today’s fight for solar rights to classic stories from the American Revolution.
I loved this book. Curren is a fabulous writer and has a great story to tell. The solar revolution in this country is exciting, patriotic, and as vital to our future as the 1776 Revolution was to our past. This is that rare must-read book for everyone, from liberal environmentalists to Tea Party conservatives.

Watch me rally the solar troops in my Revolutionary War reenactor uniform:
The Solar Patriot covers:

- How electric monopolies and fossil fuel barons are trampling on the rights of ordinary Americans to make and use their own solar power
- What you can do to fight back for solar and for your energy freedom
- Inspiring stories from the American Revolution with lessons for today’s solar patriot
A guide to joining the solar revolution, The Solar Patriot will show you what you can do to help make solar power America’s #1 energy source with ways to get involved that match your interests and background. The book will help you get connected with other individuals and groups who will make it easier for you to realize your potential as a champion for solar power.
The first time you read The Solar Patriot you’ll be inspired to take action.
And you’ll return to the book again and again for key facts about solar, stories of citizens who’ve stood up to powerful dirty energy interests and resources to help you take the next step on your solar patriotic journey.
Everyone with an interest in solar, or who is a solar skeptic, should read this book. This is a highly engrossing call to arms for Solar Patriots, making insightful connections about freedom from electric utilities’ efforts to control solar and our American Revolutionary heritage about seeking freedom from tyranny. The book informs as it engages the reader with vignettes about today’s solar revolutionaries, and making the connections with the values, tactics, and leaders who won our American freedom. I would highly recommend this to anyone who seeks new insights on how solar represents an American ideal, combined with practical solutions on how to make a difference in making rooftop solar happen, either individually, or by finding common cause with a local or national group.”
