I wanted to call attention to a couple of articles in a past issue of the ASES Solar Today magazine (March 2010).
page 44 has some tips for solar activism
and page 62 has a guide to home energy savings in Ken Sheinkopf's last column [I'm sorry to see him go].
On a less practical note, there's also an owner review of the Tesla on page 20.
I guess you don't have to join ASES to read the great articles in Solar Today any more, but it's still nice if we join ASES and support their mission.
