The future will be powered by renewables. As we transition away from finite and polluting fossil fuels, clean, reliable, and affordable renewable technologies such as solar electricity will become the mainstay of our energy supply. 

Solar Electricity Basics provides a clear understanding of electricity and energy. It discusses the types of solar electric system you can choose from, their components, solar site assessment, the installation of photovoltaic systems, and much more.

Whether your goal is to lower your energy bill or to achieve complete energy independence, Solar Electricity Basics is the introduction you need.

A decent overview… just ignore anything he says about economics This book gives a good introductory overview of home/small-office sized photovoltaic solutions for those who are relatively (or completely) unfamiliar with the topic. If you’re already somewhat knowledgeable, you’re probably better off looking elsewhere.I’d advise anyone however to ignore his advice when it comes to the financial analysis of home solar systems; the section is either terribly incompetent or terribly misleading, neither of which reflect particularly well on the author. He tries to compare an investment in a solar system to traditional financial investments, claiming that ROI (return on investment, i.e. yearly return on investment calculated as a percentage of principal payment) is a better way to evaluate a solar power investment than traditional ways such as payback time (years required until the investment pays for itself), and points out that the ROI of around 6-10% compares very favorably to traditional financial investments. The obvious flaw with…

A Great Introduction To Solar Electricity Solar Electricity Basics in a straight-forward and easy to understand introduction to solar electricity as an energy source for your house or business.Solar power may seem like a complex subject, but everything in this book is broken-down into simple terms. If you’re considering solar as an energy source, or you just want to know more about solar energy this book is for you! This is an excellent book on renewable energy.

MUST READ!!! This is a very good book for anybody who is honestly interested in renewable energy. It gives one a thorough understanding of what is involved ($$$) to do a project like that. Or for less $$ some kind of hybrid solution. And I liked the cross reference to wind power (which is another book, by the same author – and I bought that, too) adding a third option to a cleaner environment. I don’t want to sound too green but this book really answered some of my more advanced questions of effectively “catching some rays”.I’m from the “ye olde country” up north. Back when I went through physics we had to calculate the energy output of the sun in an hour/ a day/ and a year, with paper and pencil (mind you?). That sure did impress me then and still impresses me now. Back then there were already some sunlight (energy) collection devices available — for research facilities (including the military, of course); but not to Joe Sixpack.We, my wife and I, now live in/on a…
