Author Biography - Joseph R. Provey

Everett M. Barber, Jr. is the founder of Sunsearch, Inc., a business he ran for over 30 years until he recently retired to speak and write about energy matters. During that time, he and his company designed and installed thousands of solar systems in the southern New England area. In addition, Everett was an adjunct professor of Environmental Technologies at Yale University, where he taught courses in thermal analysis of buildings; system design for heating, ventilating, and air conditioning; plumbing systems; electrical systems; and fire-safe building design. Everett is a member of the American Solar Energy Society, International Solar Energy Society, and ASHRAE. At the latter, he served on the committee that developed the internationally accepted standard for testing of solar thermal collectors.Joseph R. Provey wrote his first articles about solar energy, wind power, wood heat, and saving energy during the last energy crisis, in the late 1970s--and he's still on the beat. More recently, he has written on energy-related topics for "Popular Mechanics," " Fine Homebuilding," " Handy" magazine, and in his latest book, "The Little Green Book: 365 Ways to Love the Planet" (Creative Homeowner). Joe has also served as chief editor to several national home improvement magazines, including "The Family Handyman," " Home Mechanix," and "Practical Homeowner."
