Off Grid PV Our house was just included in a book entitled Thoreau's Legacy, published by Penguin, initiated by the Union of Concerned Scientists. To read more about our house, you can look at the book's website. The eBook version of the anthology is now available on the Penguin Classics home page - - as well as from several digital bookstores.
