We believe the best relationship with the sun--the source of all energy and life on Earth and ultimately all electricity--is the most direct one. Current solar technologies are not perfect, but like the internet revolution of distributed computing power, the best way to move to a decentralized network of energy production is simply to start with what's available and grow from there.
In September 2012, Inner Traditions/Bear & Company planted an 87kW solar farm in Randolph, Vermont. The array currently produces 100% of the energy needed to run our publishing offices.
