The first Earth
Day in 1970 marked a turning point in our attitudes toward our environment;
many people were encouraged to seek a more independent style of
living. Despite this, we were at that time still locked into a dependence
on fossil fuels and nuclear energy. Anyone trying to find out about
energy alternatives discovered that the available information on
solar energy or wind power was scattered and difficult to find.
With this in
mind, SYNERJY was conceived in 1973 to provide a single comprehensive
source of renewable energy information. Since then, we have been
offering inexpensive print and electronic renewable energy publications,
find general information on solar and other types of renewable energy,
including a listing of organizations and publications in each section.
three practical tools that we hope you'll find useful:

Data -- solar radiation, sun angles, temperature, degree days,
precipitation and wind speeds for 168 U.S. cities and towns.
