You will learn insider ‘tricks of the trade’, save thousands of dollars or more on solar, and have solar salesmen shaking in their boots! Welcome to the Revolution.
Homeowners who are evaluating whether or not they should install solar panels.
Book cover type
I'm looking for a compelling design that demonstrates the dangerous environment of going solar including predatory financing, poor quality work, fly by night contractors. The book is a consumer guide to avoiding the pitfalls of solar. It is designed to help them go solar the right way, not necessarily the 'easy' way.
What to avoid
I prefer to avoid stock images as that's what the current cover has (this is a second edition). The 1st edition and current cover can be viewed on Amazon. I'd like something dramatically more engaging with my name small and title/subtitle large. I've also attached the first edition cover for review. Again, I would like something very different both in terms of design and color pallet.
It all began with a design brief.
