"Energy Free: Homes for a Small Planet" book event, January 9th!

Florey's invites you to meet Pacifica author Ann Edminster as she discusses her new book "Energy Free:
Homes for a Small Planet".

***Saturday, January 9th, 2-4 pm***

-About the book:
Energy Free is designed to equip building professionals and homeowners alike with a toolkit for creating homes that use no more energy than they produce—this means homes that are free from the vagaries of energy-price fluctuations and that help to free society of the high political and environmental costs of fossil fuels.

Individuals and institutions have been working toward "zero-energy" homes for decades. This volume is the first record of those collective efforts, distilling their experience into a practical and comprehensive how-to guide. The author includes resource information and step-by-step guidance on how to make decisions that will yield an energy-free residential project, whether a single-family home or multifamily building, new or existing, in an urban or a rural setting. The unique needs and opportunities of each context are addressed.
