About Us

Twenty five years ago, solar, wind, and hydro-electric technologies made it possible for people to live beyond the reach of the utility grid and harvest renewable energy to power both their homes and lives. With this time-tested history in hand, over the last decade, renewable energy has come to town. Today, on-grid solar-electric and solar hot water systems are a common sight in suburban and urban locations across the country. And each of these systems is an integral part of a movement that is fundamentally reframing the future of energy.

When Richard and Karen Perez launched Home Power in 1987, their mission was to change the way people generate and use energy, one rooftop at a time. And for two decades, we’ve continued to broadcast this message, loud and clear. Over the years, Home Power has become the editorial venue for homeowners, business owners, and renewable energy professionals to exchange equipment, design, installation, and system performance experiences. This information exchange has helped create an industry with not only cutting-edge technology, but perhaps more importantly, a common goal: reducing the use of polluting fossil fuels and replacing this generation capacity with the infinite supplies of renewable energy that surround us.

Over the last 25 years, we’ve published more than 150 issues of Home Power. Each issue contains the most comprehensive, technical coverage of solar, wind, and microhydro electricity, energy efficiency, solar hot water systems, space heating and cooling, energy-efficient building materials and home design, and clean transportation options. We’re here to help you make informed, fiscally sound decisions about your energy generation and use, so you too can experience the wide range of benefits that renewable energy has to offer us, individually and collectively.
