This is third Prefabulous book of a series of three. The other two were Prefabulous + Sustainable and Prefabulous. Publisher Abrams Books explains the concept of an "almost" off-the-grid home:

"Taking energy from the grid when necessary and returning any excess energy produced, almost-off-the-grid homes function on a fraction of the energy required by most houses, and additionally are more comfortable, healthier, quieter inside, and far cheaper to operate. As energy costs continue to rise, the almost-off-the-grid house proves its worth."
