Product description


"With propulsive storytelling, Russell Gold presents one of America's most ambitious and groundbreaking projects for renewable energy. Following larger-than-life men and women seeking to reshape the current energy landscape, Superpower is an essential, compelling look into the future of the nation's power grid." --Bryan Burrough, author of Public Enemies and The Big Rich

"Russell Gold is among the most thoughtful writers on energy, and while this compelling book is about one man's battle to remake America's power grid, it's also a fascinating contemplation of renewable energy in America." --Bethany McLean, author of The Smartest Guys in the Room: The Amazing Rise and Scandalous Fall of Enron
