The program begins with program host Michael Gannon quoting M. King Hubbard that the United States is running low on natural gas and oil and will soon exhaust these resources.  Gannon says that Americans are listening to this and are beginning to consider other sources of energy including sun power.  Gannon's guest is Dr. Erich Farber, professor of mechanical engineering and director of the solar energy lab and the energy conservation lab at the University of Florida.  Throughout Farber answers Gannon’s questions about solar energy, the solar house on the UF campus, the equipment, and the availability of that equipment.
